Re: ISO hotel recommendations - need well-located, smallish boutique-type hotel

It's been a few years, but some friends of mine really enjoyed their stay at the Hotel Madera on New Hampshire Ave near Dupont Circle. The towels were so fluffy they could hardly get their suitcases shut.

Re: Problems with DC Portal to access COVID-19 vaccination records

Helen Qubain
 

Hi all,
 
My partner and I got our vaccinations through WalMart NE. I had no trouble using the DC site. It found both of our Covid vaccines immediately and printed out both of our certificates.  
 
The printouts don't look professional or official, but it is what it is.  
 
Sorry to hear of your troubles. Good luck.
 
Helen

On May 3, 2021, DC Health announced the launch of DC MyIR, a web-based portal that is intended to give District residents secure, easy, and free access to their official COVID-19 vaccination records. The portal, found at myir.dc.gov, is designed to allow users to view and print official copies of their vaccination records, and their dependents’ records, at any time. The announcement indicated that if anyone experienced problems accessing their COVID-19 vaccination records in MyIR, then they should check with their vaccine provider to ensure their information is correct and to update the records.

Shortly after the announcement, I opened an account on the website. Shortly thereafter, I was informed that there was no match in the system and therefore, no records for me to access. I contacted my vaccine provider, Safeway, which provided proof that in fact, my records were property provided to both DC Health and DC MyIR. After numerous emails and phone calls to DC Health and DC MyIR over the last several weeks, I am still unable to access my records. On Tuesday, I received an email from DC MyIR falsely claiming that the problem was fixed and that I could now see my records.  As a result, yesterday, I contacted Councilmember Mary Cheh's office to look into this issue.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems with DC MyIR and has anyone been successful in resolving them? So far, this has been a massive waste of my time (and perhaps DC tax dollars) for a system that is not working at all (at least for me).

Not sure where to eat this weekend? Help welcome (new + returning) businesses!

Megan Flynn
 


As DC enters its complete reopening phase, we are excited to welcome and welcome back some of our Woodley Park Main Street businesses! A big welcome to Bistro Bites (2623 Connecticut Ave NW), who opened this week, and a very warm welcome 
back to Medaterra (2614 Connecticut Ave NW)! 

The team at Medaterra shared this message on their reopening:

"COVID-19 hit locally-owned restaurants hard, and we have seen many have to be shuttered. That is why I am so excited to share that Medaterra is back in Woodley Park! At Medaterra, we are known for our OMG AMAZING margaritas, our hearty cheeseburgers, and our fast service."

Medaterra truly is a Woodley Park institution. We are glad they can reopen following the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us in welcoming them back to Woodley Park with open arms! 

New to our community is Bistro Bites (you will soon be able to see their menu here). They are a takeout cafe with crafted espresso drinks and specialty crepes. Whether you love sweet or savory, they have got a crepe for you on their menu! Try one of their unique fusion crepes that feature honest ingredients and are always made to order. 

The survival of local shops and restaurants is dependent on neighbors choosing to shop small. Show our small businesses some love with commitments to buy local. And join us in celebrating the opening of these two great businesses!

I just tried it and the system also fails to find my vaccination records.

Re: Problems with DC Portal to access COVID-19 vaccination records

Lisa Buono
 

Hi Bill,

I'm sorry for all the tedium you're going through. Just sharing my experience that I was able to register, and when I finally got to the end and saw vaccinations listed, COVID-19 was clearly not there. Scrolling up or down was not revealing anything more. Then I clicked on the green box option to view my results as a PDF and lo and behold it WAS a longer list and both COVID vaccines were on there.

Thanks for the information and hopefully the best for your resolutions as well asap.

Metro advises Red Line customers of safety and capital improvements that will affect service starting in July

Cleveland Park Editor
 

As part of Metro’s investment in safety and reliability, construction will begin in July on the first of two major capital projects on the Red Line that will upgrade the tunnel ventilation system and repair deteriorating platform canopies. The work is expected to cause significant impacts for customers, with around-the-clock single tracking and station closures.

“It is important that we continue with this safety critical work so that we are ready and able to resume normal operations as the region reopens,” said Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld. “We will be working around the clock, seven-days a week, to maximize efficiencies and allow us to get the work done more quickly.”

Beginning Saturday, July 17, and continuing through Sunday, August 29, Metro and its contractor will install new, more powerful fans in the tunnels between Woodley Park and Cleveland Park as part of a pilot project to improve tunnel safety in the event of a smoke or fire emergency.

The 24/7 schedule will help Metro reduce the duration of the project and minimize the impact to customers. During construction, trains will continuously single track between Dupont Circle and Van Ness. Crews, working in the tunnels more than 100 feet below Connecticut Avenue, will install the necessary infrastructure and new evacuation fans at the base of the ventilation shafts.

Two weekend shutdowns will also be needed, with free shuttle buses replacing trains this summer. Additional weekend closures will be necessary in 2022 to complete the project, commissioning and safety testing.

The tunnel ventilation project was developed in response to a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) directive to upgrade tunnel ventilation after the 2015 smoke incident at L’Enfant Plaza.

As the oldest line in the Metrorail system, the Red Line ventilation shafts and fans were installed prior to the establishment of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) safety standards for transit systems.

Following the completion of the ventilation upgrades, Metro will begin work in September to replace the platform canopy at Rockville, with additional canopy repairs at Shady Grove. The concrete beam structures, original to construction in the 1980’s, are deteriorating.

The canopy project will take three months and require the closure of the Rockville and Shady Grove stations from September 11 through December 4. Free shuttle bus service will be provided to/from the closed stations.

Replacing the canopy at Rockville Station will require heavy equipment and the demolition of the existing structure, section by section. The new canopy structure will be pre-fabricated and lifted into place for installation.

Additional customer improvements will also be made to the canopy, including new, more efficient LED skylights, upgraded speaker system for station announcements, new digital screens for passenger information and new CCTV cameras for improved security among others.

During this time, Metro will also make repairs to the aging canopy at Shady Grove Station and perform other safety critical work to enhance service for customers.

The ventilation improvements and canopy rehabilitation projects are funded through Metro’s 6-year, $9.7 billion Capital Improvement Program, which invests in system safety, reliability and the region's economy.

Service Information:

July 17 – August 29
* Continuous single tracking between Dupont Circle and Van Ness stations.
* Trains will operate every 18 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont.
* Additional trains will operate between Glenmont and Farragut North from opening until 7 p.m. on weekdays only to provide more frequent service.
* Customers may also wish to use Metrobus Route L2 which runs along Connecticut Ave between Chevy Chase Circle and Farragut Square as an alternative.

Weekends of August 7-8 and August 28-29
* Red Line trains will operate in two segments: Shady Grove to Van Ness; and Dupont Circle to Glenmont.
* Free shuttle buses replace trains between Dupont Circle and Van Ness stations.
* Cleveland Park and Woodley Park stations closed.

Additional weekend shutdowns and single tracking may be necessary in 2022 to allow for safety testing.

September 11-December 4
* Red Line trains will operate normal service between Glenmont and Twinbrook only.
* Free shuttle buses replace trains between Shady Grove and Twinbrook stations.
* Shady Grove and Rockville stations closed.
* Park & Ride customers at Shady Grove and Rockville may wish to use Twinbrook or White Flint as an alternative.
* MARC and Amtrak service will continue to operate at Rockville, with no disruption to service.
* Due to the staging of heavy equipment and construction materials, Metrobus and other bus service will be rerouted. Additional details will be provided at a later date.

Additional information about service and how to stay informed can be found on the Ventilation Project page and the Rockville Canopy page on https://wmata.com/
