Great advice from our brothers at the Waynesboro Fire Department.A reminder in these trying times ... There are things we can control and things we can’t. We can’t control what others choose to do, we can control what we do.
Wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay 6 feet apart, limit your exposure to people outside your group, and stay home as much as possible.
This will slow the spread of COVID-19 and this will have the best impact on reducing the effect. ... See MoreSee Less

Most patients with COVID-19 have mild to moderate symptoms. However, in a small proportion of patients, COVID-19 can lead to more severe illness, including death, particularly among those who are older or who have chronic medical conditions. Symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Symptoms appear within 14 days of being exposed to an infectious person. CODIV-19 spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
To lower the risk of respiratory germ spread, including COVID-19, the Virginia Department of Health encourages the following effective behaviors: • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. • Stay home when you are sick. • Avoid contact with sick people. • If you are experiencing symptoms, call your doctor.
As the COVID-19 outbreak expands, recommendations may change. CSHD is working closely with the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide the best possible guidance for the community. For general questions about COVID-19, community members may call the CSHD COVID-19 Hotline at 855.949.8378. For the latest on COVID-19, visit: www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus.

Some people are making wipes by getting big rolls of paper towels n taking out the cardboard. Then mixing 1cup Bleech to 5 cups of water I believe, putting that mixture & whole roll of paper towels into a plastic bag or clean container & letting the moisture soak into the paper towels. Can use to wipe things down.

What sucks is when you go in to do your shopping for two weeks and the store is picked over and has a limit on items such as hamburger, I’m sorry but 2lbs of burger isn’t going to last a family of 4 two weeks, so instead of shopping in one place and being done we had to go elsewhere just for 2 weeks of groceries. Trying to minimize travel and the public didn’t work out too well today 😅

Governor Northam has announced that all schools in Virginia will be closed for the remainder of the school year. The Virginia Department of Education will provide guidance to local school divisions regarding graduation for seniors. This guidance is expected to give localities flexibility and waivers for graduation requirements that will allow students on track for graduation to graduate on time. We are concerned about the time all students are missing from school and additional guidance from the Virginia Department of Education is expected regarding continuity of instruction. The school division will continue to provide information to families throughout the coming days and weeks as information become available. The school meals distribution will continue during the school closure. Please be assured that we are making the best decisions for our students during these unprecedented and uncertain times. Continue to check our website for updated information. We realize there are many questions that are unanswered and we will strive to provide answers as they become available.

Subject: Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center, Current Service Plan and Communication
From: City Manager Michael G. Hamp II
The services and care provided at the Animal Shelter are regarded as essential and will be maintained during the Coronavirus Pandemic to the greatest extent possible. Protecting the safety and health of the employees is essential to successfully meeting the goal of sustained service. To that end, as with other governmental services, we are asking that citizens and customers make an effort to conduct business by telephone or online. Here are some guidelines for delivery of service in the near term.
1. Adoptions and fosters by appointment only. Appointments can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the shelter.
2. We encourage owners who are surrendering pets to call the Shelter at 943-5142 and schedule an appointment.
3. When it is necessary to conduct business in person, we ask that you call the Shelter from our parking lot and let us know you need service. We'll come out and greet you. Our lobby/counter area does not have sufficient area to allow for recommended social distancing.
As conditions change, it may be necessary to further alter our service delivery plan, perhaps limiting services or prioritizing services. These decisions will be made with the health and safety of our patrons in mind and in measures and gradual manner. ... See MoreSee Less

The Waynesboro Police Department along with Waynesboro Fire and Rescue Squad responded to a motor vehicle accident involving a bicycle this afternoon at approximately 1:30 PM.
The accident occurred at the intersection of S. Wayne Ave. and 13th Street when the bicycle being operated by a 13-year-old Waynesboro boy struck an enclosed trailer being pulled by a Ford pickup truck, and then went partially under the trailer where he was struck by the wheels. The truck was being operated by a 54-year-old Staunton man.
The preliminary investigation has revealed that the truck and trailer were proceeding South on South Wayne Avenue at the intersection when the bicycle, according to multiple witnesses, proceeded into Wayne Avenue from 13th street without stopping for the stop sign, striking the trailer.
The youth was transported to Augusta Health where he was immediately airlifted to UVA Medical Center in Critical Condition.
The boy and a girl were riding around for hours without supervision. I was a block away when it happened. Both of them ride around everyday with no adult around. Unfortunately this was just a matter of when it was going to happen.
Prayers for the kiddo and the driver sure he's shook up and both families and ems working scene
Praying for the boy and the driver. So awful.
Prayers for all involved and their families
Praying for his parents and of course the child!!!
That’s my area. People have to be careful with the kids being out of school. Prayers for the boy and his family.
Prayers for the boy and the driver and the families of those involved. So sad.
The Waynesboro Police Department would like to say thank you to numerous local businesses who have shown their support for our officers during this stressful time. We are very blessed to have such support from our community. Knowing our officers were going to need hand sanitizer to maintain their own health while still providing service to others, Silverback Distillery took it upon themselves to make bottles of sanitizer and donate them to our department. Mrs. Carie Waddy with the Dollar General in Waynesboro, donated hand sanitizer as well as disinfectant cleaning solution from her own supply. Food Lion on Hopeman Pkwy and Food Lion in Grottoes both allowed WPD to buy enough hand sanitizer to hold us over until we can get supplies to replenish our stock. Employees from Dollar General in Stuarts Draft and Target have both been very helpful in maintaining contact with our agency in order for us to obtain the ingredients needed to make sanitizing products for our officers. It is a great feeling to know that our community will pull together to make sure basic needs are met for our first responders. Thank you to all who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers and helped in any way. Stay safe! ... See MoreSee Less

The men and women of the Waynesboro Police Department are committed to continuing to provide a high level of law enforcement services to our community during this challenging time. During the current National Emergency, we will continue to provide law enforcement services while doing our best to safeguard the health of our staff and the citizens of Waynesboro.
Some of the safeguards we have implemented include but are not limited to the following:
• If a request for police service is not an emergency, we may call you and work through your situation over the phone rather than responding in person. • When officers do arrive at the scene of a call for service, they may ask that you exit your home or business to speak with them outside. • If you come to the police department, the officer may request to speak with you outside instead of in the lobby. • Officers and/or dispatchers may inquire about the health of those inside your home or business if they need to respond in person to you. • Officers may be wearing personal protective equipment (gloves, surgical mask, safety glasses, etc.) when they respond to a call for service. Please do not be offended, this is to protect you as well as our officers. • Officers may utilize social distancing (6 feet) and may not shake your hand when responding to a call for service. • Some of the normal programs we offer to the community such as our ride along program and employment fingerprinting have been suspended indefinitely.
Waynesboro Police Officers will continue to respond to emergency calls for service, major case investigations, crimes in progress, motor vehicle crashes, missing person/runaway cases, and domestic disturbances however; they may take certain precautions as listed above during the course of responding to your call for service.
Most importantly, please be patient and realize that we are implementing these safeguards to protect our officers as well as the Waynesboro community.
Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate this difficult time together.

The City of Waynesboro government is monitoring the rapidly evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and we are initiating a variety of response measures. The City is activating Continuity of Operation (COOP) procedures to ensure the consistent delivery of essential government services and, hopefully, reduce the spread of infection. COOP plans identify essential services, define key personnel necessary to deliver such services, orders of succession and potential staff redundancy available to backfill positions and steps to protect frontline employees. In the case of a pandemic, most measures are meant to increase hygiene and social distancing.
Notable elements of the plans include: Providing personal protective equipment to first responders and other public safety personnel as appropriate; Initiating functions that can be performed off-site by remote working and telecommunicating; Cancelling events, programs and other gatherings held by the City; Resorting to alternate forms of communication in lieu of face-to-face meetings; Restricting travel for City business.
The public can expect that the City will continue to deliver the vital services upon which it depends notably police, fire and emergency medical services, basic infrastructure and sanitation. At the same time abundant caution is urged relative to face-to-face interaction and accordingly, events and meetings may be postponed or cancelled. Some public facilities could be closed. Services that can typically be accessed in person may only be available electronically or by telephone. We all hope that any inconvenience is minor and temporary.

The City of Waynesboro government is closely monitoring developments related to the spread and prevention of the coronavirus. Our key concerns are for the health of our employees and the public and for ensuring consistent delivery of essential local government services should the coronavirus effect our region.
For most people, the symptoms of the coronavirus are mild and similar to the common cold or other respiratory ailments. For a small percentage of individuals, primarily the elderly or people with existing health problems, the virus may be serious and even life-threatening. There are simple things you can do to help keep yourself and others healthy:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Stay home when you are sick. • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. • Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

It has been brought to our attention that there are a number of new "email scams" going around involving PayPal. If you have a PayPal account, here is some information that has been provided by PayPal to help keep you from becoming a victim of fraud.
Faked sender email address:
Fraudsters can easily fake the “friendly name” in the sender’s email address. For example, an email can appear to be from “PayPal Services,” but actually be from firstname.lastname@example.org. Some email clients make it hard to see the real name. But if you mouse over the friendly name or click “Reply,” you should be able to see the full email address of the sender. Sophisticated fraudsters can fake the entire name to look like a legitimate sender, so be careful. Though verifying a correct sender address is important, it’s not enough. It’s important to look at the entire email. When you check your account, always enter "www.PayPal.com" into your browser instead of clicking a link in an email.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is:
Advance fee fraud. Most of us are careful if a stranger approaches on the street and offers a deal that's just too good to be true. But we're much less cautious online, which puts us at risk. If you get an offer for free money, there's probably a catch. Typically, fraudsters will ask you to send some smaller amount (for taxes, for legal documents, etc.) before they can send you the millions you are promised, but which they never intend to send you.
Verify through your PayPal account. If you receive an email that says that you've received a PayPal payment, take a moment to log in to your PayPal account before you ship any merchandise. Make sure that money has actually been transferred, and that it isn’t just a scam. Remember not to follow email links. The safest way to access your account is always to open a browser window, navigate to PayPal.com, and enter your login info.
Be aware of telltale signs of fraud. Messages asking you to pay a small handling fee to collect some fabulous prize are usually a scam. “High-Profit No-Risk” investments are usually scams. Messages insisting that you “Act Now!” for a great deal are often scams.
Fake charities. Scammers use disasters to trick kind-hearted people into donating to fake charities. This usually happens when there is a refugee crisis, a terrorist attack, or a natural disaster (like an earthquake, flooding, or famine). Thoroughly check the background of any charity to make sure your donation goes to real victims.
To learn more about common scams and how to avoid them, search online for more about advance fee fraud. You can also read the FBI's material on common types of scams. Most importantly: be as cautious online as you are in the real world.
Here are some common scams where fraudsters use spoofed emails:
"Your account is about to be suspended." Many fraudsters send spoofed emails warning that an account is about to be suspended, and that the account holder must enter their password in a spoofed webpage. Be careful; PayPal will never ask you to enter your password unless you are on the login page. Report any suspect email by forwarding it to email@example.com. This can help keep you and your family secure.
"You've been paid." Some fraudsters try to trick you into thinking that you've received a payment. They want what you're selling for free. Before you ship anything, log into your PayPal account and check that you were actually paid.
"You have been paid too much." Fraudsters may try to convince you that you've been paid more than you were owed. For example, a spoofed email says that you’ve been paid $500 for a camera you listed at $300! The sender asks you to ship the camera in addition to the extra $200 you were “paid” by mistake. In this example, the scammer wants your camera AND your money, but hasn’t actually paid you at all. Don't fall for it! Simply log into your PayPal account and check that you were paid before sending anything.
How to identify real PayPal emails:
An email from PayPal will: • Come from paypal.com. Scammers can easily fake the “friendly name,” but it’s more difficult to fake the full name. A sender like “PayPal Service (zxk1942R3@gmail.com)" is not a message from PayPal. But sophisticated scammers can sometimes fake the full name, so look for other clues. • Address you by your first and last names, or your business name.
An email from PayPal won't: • Ask you for sensitive information like your password, bank account, or credit card. • Contain any attachments or ask you to download or install any software.
Bogus links in emails:
If there's a link in an email, always check it before you click. A link could look perfectly safe like www.paypal.com/SpecialOffers, but if you move your mouse over the link you'll see the true destination. If you aren’t certain, don’t click on the link. Just visiting a bad website could infect your machine.
If you do click a link in an email, be sure to review the URL of the site where you land. It is easy for bad guys to copy the look of a legitimate website, so you need to check that you are on the correct website. ... See MoreSee Less

February 18, 2020 Waynesboro Police Have arrested 2 men in connection to an armed home invasion which occurred late last night, and are searching for a third.
Officers responded to a 911 call at a residence in the 1100 block of Ohio Street at approximately 10:50 P.M. Upon arrival they found the 19-year-old male and 18-year-old female occupants of the home with visible injuries to the head which required transport by rescue and treatment at Augusta Health. Both have since been released. One other juvenile was also home at the time of the incident but he was unharmed. Investigation revealed that three individuals had kicked in the front door and went immediately to a bedroom where the two victims were sleeping and demanded money or drugs. When the couple said they had none, one of the subjects brutally pistol whipped the two in their bed. All three suspects were armed with handguns and two of them searched areas of the house, stealing various items including a purse, Book Bag and debit cards, etc.
The suspects fled the scene prior to officer arrival but two of them were located by assisting Augusta County units on Mulberry Street about 10 blocks from the home. The two were detained and property stolen from the home along with clothing worn by the suspects were found to be with them, along with evidence of the assault.
Ultimately, they were both arrested and charged as follows: 1. Arun Rashid Turay, 22, of Charlottesville • Burglary while Armed • Robbery • Grand Larceny • Possess Firearm by a Convicted Felon • Malicious Wounding • Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony • Wear a Mask to Conceal Identity
2. Justice Ahmad Carr, 18, of Charlottesville • Burglary While Armed • Robbery • Grand Larceny • Use of Firearm to Commit Felony • Wear Mask to Conceal Identify
These two suspects are currently in Middle River Regional Jail without bond and the Department’s investigation continues into the identity and whereabouts of the third perpetrator. END ... See MoreSee Less

Thank God that couple wasn’t armed to protect themselves. We could have had some injured criminals on our hands. Glad the gangsters from Little California could make it out safe and sound to cost us working folk years of money for there incarceration!
They're lucky that wasn't my house .....it would've been a different photo of them.......
How did they know where the bedroom was?? Had they been there before?? Lots of questions to answered now. I am glad the couple were not hurt any worse. Put these punks away for a long time.
Kudos to the WPD!! Great job!

This is why regular Joe’s need to be able to arm themselves!!
They should be put in front of a firing squad so the American people should not have to pay for them to be a jail
Too bad the victims weren't armed so those punks wouldn't have made it out!

On Thursday, 6 February 2020, the Waynesboro Police Department executed a high-risk narcotics search warrant at 217 South Winchester Ave in the City of Waynesboro. The search warrant execution was categorized as high risk because the resident Brian Craig Henthorn had previously threatened to shoot fire personnel in the face when they responded to a call for service at the residence on 9 January 2020. The Waynesboro Police S.W.A.T. team use distraction munitions due to the high-risk nature of the operation. As a result of evidence recovered at the scene, the following charges were placed.
42-year-old Waynesboro resident Brian Craig Henthorn was charged with a violation of Virginia State Code 18.2-250, possession of Methamphetamine. Henthorn faces 2-10 years in prison if convicted. Henthorn was released on a 1,000-dollar unsecured bond.

I'm curious as to why the Constitution park area is so dark? We live on the tree streets and have walked around dark with the family to grab a bite from Gios. A few homeless men were harassing us from under/around the bridge area and we couldn't see them. We started across to the old Advance parking lot to avoid any bad outcome. We then drove around and really paid attention. Those areas are not well lit. Shouldn't the areas where the homeless choose to hang out after dark be better lit?
Just a thought
Wouldn't it also help if all the streetlights were back on. So many dark streets because of the lights being out are conductive to crime. From Lyndhurst Rd to Broad Street alone there are approximately 14 lights off. Light deters criminal activity...
An armed citizen for intruders who break in. Will do the trick
Update: As a result of investigation into the shooting incident that occurred in the 200 block of Tiffany Drive yesterday Waynesboro Police have identified and charged two Waynesboro residents.

A thankless job done by dedicated, hard working people. Much appreciated by those that understand!
Some of these comments are so ridiculous! Does anyone get how sad it is that two young people are clearly going down the wrong path?
Thank you! Waynesboro Police dept💙
Some of you need to read it again .it say one of them turned himself in so they didn’t go pick him up smh
So can they be bailed out and end up back over here and start more trouble? I'm worried about all the kids that live here.
There’s so many kids over in this area this could have ended so badly!!
Heard they even threw the guns at each other but they missed each other that time too!!! Read up on learning to Shoot while in Prison...😄😃😀
It is hard to understand why people are so dumb.
Y’all all whack asf 😂😂 don’t even know the whole story! But quick to say “thank you wpd” 🤣 Zerrion will be home soon 🤷🏽♀️
Soooo.... neither one was a good marksman.... these are the types that will ALWAYS have guns.... regardless what the laws are...but let those of us who know how to hit a target on the first shot be the ones not allowed to possess a firearm due to other laws trying to get passed...🤦♀️
Thanks WPD for your quick response in getting these "unskilledchildren" off the street
Way to stand there and let them get their self attested. Wpd got a freebie this time. They just sat by the phone and ringy dingy . Oh I got a gunshot wound . Ok be right there. Who shot you? I fell.... Hey Sarge we got a guy turned himself in he says he shot a man ...... Case closed. .....

Thank you WPD for your hard work and communication. Please, please, please update if/when the suspect is caught. The surrounding neighborhood is worried, unnerved. I’m fairly certain this suspect was in my yard after the incident. We have notified the police separately.
Please update when suspect is apprehended! I live here and have small kids.
So... there is an armed suspect on the loose somewhere in Waynesboro? 😔
Has this kid been caught yet?? Does anyone know?
Does anyone know if he's been caught?

They say a black man in his late teens early 20's but stop the first black man they seen at his job who is 50 yrs old smdh. As soon as they hear black man they don't care about age they gonna mess with the first black man they see. I use to praise the police department in Waynesboro but they are starting to seem like Staunton pd. To many young cops ready to pull a trigger quickly now of days through out these United States 😔

Here are some great winter driving tips to help keep everyone safe as we start the new year. Be safe out there tomorrow.
Always adjust your speed down to account for lower traction when driving on snow or ice. Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Apply the gas slowly to regain traction and avoid skids. Don't try to get moving in a hurry and take time to slow down for a stoplight. ... See MoreSee Less
