The health and safety of our staff and guests is priority #1 at The WIHN
Our highest priority always is the safety and well-being of our guests and staff. We are deeply concerned about the impact of this rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic and have worked tirelessly to ensure we are protecting The WIHN community. We are working around the clock to protect our guests and to mitigate the spread of this virus and minimize exposure and risk. We are prepared to respond to this rapidly changing situation. For the most updated information, please refer to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or DC Department of Health.
We have taken the following proactive measures against the spread of COVID-19:
The D.C. Department of Health recommends that if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath, you stay in your room. If you do not feel better in 24-48 hours, they recommend that you call your health care provider. If you do not have one, we recommend that you call your school wellness department. If you need help getting medical care, call 311.
If you are self-isolating in your room, or if you feel you may be ill, please call your Housing Coordinator to alert them of the situation so we can help support you.

We are in constant communication with our partner schools and will update our guidance as more information becomes available. We are also monitoring the pronouncements of the Centers for Disease Control, the D.C. Department of Health, and the World Health Organization.
To our staff, we understand that business continuity relies on your many areas of expertise, hard work, and continued commitment to this organization and we will work with you to ensure your personal and professional needs are met. You have been working diligently to maintain exceptional guest services and operational excellence. We all appreciate your professionalism and commitment to our community especially during this time.
To families, your student’s health and well-being remains our top priority. We know this has been a challenging two years as we navigate these uncertain times together. We will communicate frequently as we move through this situation together.
Our community is global, understanding, and resilient, and we are proud of the way we have come together to address this concerning and evolving situation. If there is ever a time to practice more love and care for one another, no matter the distance, now is that time. We ask you to be patient and understand the challenges that we are all facing at this time.
"I must emphsize how responsive and helpful the WIHN has been during my time in DC. If there is ever a problem or I just have a question, I simply send a text to one number and it reaches every employee. Each time I have sent a text about anything, I have gotten a response immediately!"
