“Dear PoPville,

I hope everyone is well and thank you for your service. As coronavirus masks are not easy to find, and not everyone has the materials to make one at home, I thought it might be good for the community to know where you can find coronavirus masks.

I learned today, that Lucas Tailor and Cleaner, in Georgetown (1520 Wisconsin Ave, NW), is making and selling coronavirus masks. They are currently selling 3 masks for $15, and 5 masks for $20.”

If folks know of other places, please leave in the comments, thanks.


If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Say hello to the kitty whose foster family calls him “Mr. Purrsonality” – it’s Arlo! Arlo is about 1 year old, and earned his nickname because he has never met any creature he doesn’t like – human, cat, or even dog! Arlo was born with a non-progressive and non-contagious disease that makes him walk in a wobbly fashion, but that doesn’t stop this handsome dude! He loves to play and cuddle, and will do great in a home with other pets, as he’s super-playful and yet also super-loving- maybe he’ll even share his blue slinky toy with you… Find out more about adopting special and sweet Arlo (and check out a video of his unique walk) here.

Looking for a life of the party, energetic friend who’s always up for fun? Meet Bobby! This young, medium-sized fellow has a genuine case of FOMO – he wants to be a part of everything, from games, backyard adventures and playing with toys, to chilling out and sharing affection. Bobby is being fostered in a family with kids and another dog and is doing great! He’s receiving some training to have the best possible manners, but he already has the best possible attitude – Bobby’s a yes dog!

“Dear PoPville,

I’d love to find out what the status is of daycares charging families. Currently ours is closed but charging full price for families to keep their spot, or else we have to drop out of the daycare altogether. I’ve heard of other daycares closing and not charging. What are people’s experiences?”


Ed. Note: This demand follows multiple complaints discussed here.

From the DC Attorney General’s Office:

“Attorney General Karl A. Racine, New York AG Tish James, and Pennsylvania AG Josh Shapiro today demanded Town Sports International, LLC (TSI) stop charging membership dues to gym members during the COVID-19 public health emergency. In the District, TSI’s Washington Sports Club (WSC) facilities are closed as part of the District’s emergency response to the pandemic. While many fitness clubs have provided automatic membership freezes at no cost, TSI has continued to charge District customers for memberships they cannot use. Read More


Ed. Note: If construction continues to be deemed essential, I believe the onus should be on the construction crew management to make sure processes are in place to ensure a scene like this is not repeated.

“Dear PoPville,

As a follow-up to this week’s construction debate, here’s how workers at Signal House in NoMa are taking their lunch today. No fewer than 20 of them shoulder to shoulder at this illegally parked food truck. Read More


From ANXO:

“To our ANXO Family, Friends and Neighbors,

We know that this is an extremely difficult time for so many. At ANXO, we made the difficult decision to close our @anxotruxton and @anxobrightwood locations for the safety of our customers and employees. With a heavy heart, we had to make the hardest decision we’ve ever faced: laying off most of our employees.

But ANXO is still here. We are resilient. We are creative. We are as committed as ever to our family of employees and to our wonderful community. But our ANXO family needs your help as we transition our business to pickup, delivery, and online sales. If you have the means to support ANXO during this time, here are some ways you can help: Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I have a severally disturbed/manic neighbor in my condominium complex who has wrapped me and my boyfriend into his mental delusions, despite us having never met this individual. On multiple occasions he has threatened physical violence (“I’m going to slit your throat; “You’re never going to make it out of your unit alive”; etc), attempted to kick in my front door to the point of physical damage, destroyed my electronic key pad to enter my unit, thrown racial/homophobic epithets, shouted these threats in the parking lot outside of my window to cajole us to look outside. To be clear, we’ve never spoken to this individual: outside of these instances, we’ve only even seen him in the hallway once, but according to him I am sneaking into his home at night to stab him with hypodermic needles while he sleeps.
