Keeping DC Prep students safe in the classroom and beyond!

DC Prep has partnered with Privia Health to provide all students, their parents or guardians, and school staff with free around the clock access to a dedicated care team. Privia’s care team will be in touch in the event that your child tests positive for COVID-19 or is exposed to COVID-19.

The following resources are designed to supplement the care you are receiving from your usual primary care provider.

Have questions? Contact a Privia Care Advisor for help understanding and navigating your care options.

Stay Informed

The CDC has the most up-to-date guidance on how to care for yourself and help protect others in your home and community. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. We strongly recommend the following:

  • If you have any flu-like symptoms, such as fever, a dry cough and/or shortness of breath, contact your Primary Care Doctor or start an on-demand virtual visit with a Privia provider.
  • Practice social distancing and take other common-sense preventive actions to stop the spread of germs.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others in accordance with DC DOH guidance.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Keep your child home from school if they are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes and then immediately wash your hands.

Watch for Symptoms

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
