A message from Colin M. Greene, MD, MPH, Director, Lord Fairfax Health District

"Each of us has the power through our own choices and actions to save American lives"

These words are spot on right now.

This virus can't survive on its own. It has to live off of human respiratory cells, and it can only survive in one person for a couple of weeks before that person's immune system destroys it. If it can't jump to a new person, it's finished.

This is its weak point, as we must exploit that weakness to defeat it...we need to take away its chance to make that jump.
Each of us has that power.

This virus is sneaky. Many people who get it have few or no symptoms, and don't know they can spread it. So we all must use our power.

Minimize the number and duration of close human contacts outside your household...that's the ticket to victory.
Stay home as much as possible...you can't infect new people from home.

Stay six feet away from others if you're out...the air disperses the virus over distance. Get exercise, but in individual sports: walk, run, cycle, hike...keeping your six-foot distance.

Don't be a vector: avoid unnecessary travel, especially from a high-risk area to one of low risk.

If you're starting to feel sick, absolutely stay home. If you think you need to be seen, call your doctor first if you can. Use the ER if you think you might need to be in the hospital, but still try to warn them before you walk in.

Stay away from the elderly and infirm, but call them, skype them, text them...let them know you still love them.

And of course, cover coughs and sneezes properly and wash your hands frequently.

Please don't hoard. Have 1-2 weeks worth of food at home, but please take only what you need.

If we all do all these things for the next month, most of the infections we have now will be gone.

We Americans have gotten through a lot before, and we'll get through this, too.

Each one of us has the power. But we all have to use it.
May you all be safe, healthy, and blessed. We'll spend lots of time together once this is over.

Why would you call 911 to ask them about stores being restocked call the store and they have a non emergency number people 5406626162

Smh.... FB need to add a 7th SMFH or facepalm emoji.

Just print more money the u.s. dollar isn't back by any real value.

So sad that you have to answer these types of calls and then having to explain to people the real reason for calling 911 but thank you for being there and your patience during these uncertain times.

If people are calling 911 for that they aren't very bright.

Our SROs working hard for the kids. ❤️Bright Futures & FCSO: Working together to help feed area children during school closings.

There are children in Frederick County who are not receiving the proper / recommended daily intake of food and nutrition while public schools have temporarily closed. Some families find themselves struggling during the current global crisis as those school-aged children are missing the free breakfast and/or lunch normally provided at school. Some other’s could find themselves in similar situations if continued shuttering and restrictions begin to adversely affect family incomes and budgets.

Bright Futures is working to help alleviate any burdens or hardships on local families by providing food to those children in need. Members of the Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer (SRO) program are working alongside Bright Futures personnel to package up and deliver care packages to area families in need. While schools remain closed, FCSO School Safety Division’s SRO’s will continue to assist Bright Futures with packaging and delivery of food supplies during this ongoing situation.

Donations are welcome and every little bit helps.

Frederick County Response to COVID-19

The Board of Supervisors and the office of the County Administrator are working closely with the Lord Fairfax Health District and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to closely monitor the pandemic of the respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus (COVID-19).

In response to the public health threat posed by coronavirus (COVID-19), Frederick County Government is making operational changes to ensure the health and safety of the community and County staff. These changes will ensure continuity of important programs and services, while limiting non-essential office visits.

We urge the public to limit your visits to Frederick County Offices to absolute necessities and to call or email prior to coming in. Your cooperation in restricting your visits will help Frederick County Government continue to provide vital services. Please know that some services may be slower than normal or not available as staff is being given flexible leave to comply with the advice of government health organizations. Here is a quick link to all County Department phone numbers: https://www.fcva.us/departments.

Someone asked earlier about the kids in public schools who depend on Bright Futures for food. This is a real and serious issue for many families. Here is your chance to help!UPDATE - Those of you who have been looking to help, now is your chance! We have been in constant contact with Bright Futures to make sure no children will be going hungry during the school closing. The program anticipates needing MORE FOOD to ensure that any existing children in the program and any new children in need are taken care of. Please consider making a donation of non-perishable food specified on the list. Priority foods are breakfast and snack items. In addition, donations of toilet paper/Clorox wipes/disposable gloves or hand sanitizer are also greatly needed.

Donations can be brought to the Bright Futures location (178 Indian Hollow Road Winchester, VA 22603), which will be open from 8:00am-4:30pm on weekdays. If you have transportation issues, please feel free to bring any donations to the United Way NSV office in downtown Winchester. Expect more updates in the coming days. Thank you for #LivingUnited
