Modified District Government Services for Juneteenth

Tuesday, June 18, 2024

(Washington, DC) – On Wednesday, June 19, District Government will observe Juneteenth. While some services will be affected, many District employees will continue serving to maintain essential District operations.  
 
As the District remains in an Extended Heat Emergency, some facilities are specifically opening on Wednesday, June 19 to help people beat the heat, including select outdoor pools and recreation centers.  

During the Extended Heat Emergency, residents are urged to stay cool, check on seniors and other vulnerable neighbors, and to call the shelter hotline for unsheltered residents in need of free, accessible transportation to a cooling center. To request accessible transportation to a cooling center for yourself or someone else, call the shelter hotline at (202) 399-7093 or dial 311.
 
It is important for residents to recognize the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and stroke. Symptoms may include dry red skin, convulsions, throbbing headaches, disorientation, chills, delirium, and coma. Onset of heatstroke can be rapid; a person can go from feeling apparently well to a seriously ill condition within minutes. If you suspect that you or someone you know is experiencing a heat related illness, call 911.
