Here is a link to a valuable resource for information and links specific to the Commonwealth of Virginia regarding COVID-19 updates: https://www.virginia.gov/coronavirus-updates/.
Effective March 12, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency in the Commonwealth of Virginia in response to the continued spread of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. COVID-19 is highly contagious. The Governor encourages “social distancing” – keeping at least 6 feet between individuals.
There is a great deal of information (and some misinformation) on social media and “click bait” websites. Please rely on our government health agencies for up-to-date and accurate information regarding COVID-19 and by visiting the link below to the Virginia Department of Health page dedicated to the novel coronavirus.
As always, your local government will continue to provide services as uninterrupted as possible and distribute information as we have it available. We will keep you informed of any changes. We will remain in close contact with the Piedmont District Health Office and VA Department of Emergency Management. If you have any other questions or concerns, call the Lunenburg County Administration Office at 434-696-2142. For emergencies, please dial 9-1-1.
NOTE: If you think you may have symptoms related to COVID-19, please call ahead to your medical provider’s office. They will determine the next steps and whether they need to refer you to the VA Department of Health for testing. Avoid going to the emergency room unless you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms.
