How about instead of pointing fingers and trying to find someone to blame, we all instead work on ways to solve the problem before it’s one of our friends or family who no longer have the supplies they need? Prosecute whomever needs to be prosecuted once this crises is over and people are safe. Anything else is a waste of time or energy, when we have little of each to spare.

Now everyone go to your favorite fast food restaurant drive thru, then Costco. UGH!!!
Also not many tests are available in rural areas. 😠
What happened to the peak in two weeks, now WS is saying May????
Wonder if that is because you all didn’t start social distancing right away?!
Until there is a quarantine order put in place it will only get worse
Please do explain "outpatient quarantine" works?
Are they going back and forth from the hospital to home for treatment?
That is a wrong statement to make!
And I agree with everyone else! "Fairly certain" is NOT a diagnosis! Don't report until you have 100 percent accuracy!
They could at least tell the public WHERE they worked at.
The valley heath urgent care next to best buy has had numerous patients that has tested positive for the convid 19. So those going there be careful.
How can they be “ fairly certain”
Are patients & co-worker who came in contact with these Valley Health employees being notified and quarantined, as mandated?
Fairly certain is a test result now?
They can’t say they contacted it “elsewhere”! Then WHERE DID THEY CONTACT IT????? We need to know!
If you need to be tested, MedExpress is another option.
Now update us in a week on their recovery.
Does it go against HIPAA if we are told the towns?
“Fairly certain” means nothing. That statement was made so people don’t worry.
Praying for quick recovery!
Of course they will say they got it elsewhere! 🙄
How long have they kept this information from the community?
This is not true. The hospital is not sharing numbers of infected patients with the staff. They do not have supplies. They are not ready. This is all a posturing effort to absolve responsibility from Valley Health so they don't have to pay their sick staff. It is disgusting.
And those who work outside ?
What are they supposed to do ? Curious I dont know the answer.
Stay home everyone stay home!!!!
Did you guys remove the 5 reads per month limit?
I don’t know why everyone thinks the public needs to know where they worked and where they contracted it from 🤦🏼♀️ ALL patients are entitled to their privacy rights, including medical staff. If you are in danger, you would be notified. Not only that, but you should be quarantined now anyway.
How does old black face make a rule that we must stay at home if there are many folk who own boats and will be harming NO one if they went fishing with their spouse.

I feel on one hand it is a good idea but on the other hand the Governor has closed school for the rest of the year and we still have no clue of if the class of 2020 will have graduation. So I do not know if they can make these kids to do their school work or not!
What if the child doesn't have ready access to a computer. I will not allow my 7 year old grandson on my laptop.
Internet access for online learning at home is not the only issue. Most families, even those who have internet access, are sharing devices and it will be difficult for students to be expected to participate in an online session at a particular time or access their online work when parents may be using the computer to work.
I think the schools are reaching out to parents to make sure students have internet and a computer. I’m assuming if they don’t, they’ll make other arrangements. I received a call from Quarles today.

From the Frederick County Public School’s Facebook page.
At a time when our focus is on providing educational materials and other services to students and their families, it’s unfortunate that we have to take time to correct misinformation about the Superintendent’s Proposed FY21 Budget. However, an article published in today’s Winchester Star entitled “Frederick County Residents Divided on Tax Increase” contains inaccurate information that needs to be addressed.
The article states that the only information that’s been provided to the members of the Frederick County Board of Supervisors regarding the Superintendent’s Proposed FY21 Budget is a three-page summary available on the school division’s website (bit.ly/FCPSbudgetproposalFY21). This is not true.
Following the School Board’s fall training session held on October 25, 2019, each Supervisor was provided with the same 142 pages of information provided to School Board members during the session. The School Board utilized the information to develop its FY21 Budget Priorities. During the School Board’s meeting on February 18, 2020, Dr. Sovine presented his proposed FY21 budget. Following the meeting, a detailed copy of his presentation (22 pages) was provided to each Supervisor through the County Administrator. Dr. Sovine also provided the Board of Supervisors with additional information on his proposed budget during the School Board/Board of Supervisors Joint Meeting held on February 26, 2020. A copy of the presentation he made that night was also provided to each Supervisor and School Board member. The school division has also responded to numerous questions posed by different Supervisors via e-mail throughout the budget process. Finally, each member of the Board of Supervisors has been provided with a copy of the School Board Approved Budget for Fiscal Year 2020 (140 pages). That document is also available on the FCPS website (bit.ly/FCPSfy20approvedbudget).
Clearly, members of the Board of Supervisors have received far more than a three-page summary of the Superintendent’s Proposed Budget and the statement appearing in today’s Winchester Star article is not accurate.

READ!!!! Don't jump to conclusions before reading. It actually makes sense, and no I'm not biased. I don't know anyone in jail other than CO's.
Best statement of the whole article is 2nd to last:
"...the jail doesn’t have a specific number that they want inmate population to be, but fewer inmates means more space for potential quarantine areas."
We don't know how many, but we're gonna do it because that's what other jails are doing. We don't know how much space we need, we just know we need space. Good luck general public!
People please read the article instead of just commenting on the headline!! Read not skim the article. There is a difference.
Some of you should be jailed for your lack of reading comprehension skills. 😒
Ironically enough, a jail is the best place to quarantine and isolate
I see the voting population going up!
none of y’all read the article and it shows🤪
Really, an they ain't going to get it out of jail
Yes, it included work release because of the risk of them bring the virus in when they return, I think more places should do this when they have proven that they are reliable enough to return everyday!!
Which is to say, they probably didn't need to be in the people warehouse to begin with. I'm sure they're non-violent, no gun charges, no sex offenses, etc...

It’s hard. We are worried about our students. For a HUGE variety of reasons TBH. It was so sudden with no warning. This isn’t a vacation for ANY of us. It’s beyond stressful.
I have a 2nd grader and 6th grader but more worried about the seniors who won’t see their graduation
I know there are some ideas being discussed. Contact your local school office. If you cannot reach a person leave s message or show up at one of the food distribution points and ask.
Devastating to my kindergartener, who’s heartbroken she won’t get to finish the year. Everything you ever needed to know you learned in kindergarten, right?
Why can’t they at least postpone graduation for our senior
Since there are no school in use, a 60% tax break is in order!
Graduation.....is all I can comment is what about our seniors graduation? As parents we are so sad....but as the mom of a senior...this is devestating
You don't have to wait on the school system to hold a graduation...once the restrictions are lifted hold a community graduation, Caps, and Gowns and all. It would be a way to show a coming together...
They should reschedule graduation for all these seniors and also the prom because these girls have already brought dresses and just look they would be missing😢😢😢😢😢
I think they should be a way to do graduation even if it is late they deserve it and so do parents
I think classes should be online
How was i impacted? Well It gave me an immediate $hit cramp and doubled me over

WTH? What about flattening the curve does VA not get? You should be encouraging people to stay home, not go out and shop. And that “group of 10” recommendation is no longer.
There are many residents that live downtown that are now working from home and need metered parking spaces. My neighbor is about to lose his job his wife is pregnant and due in April and got a ticket the other day while unloading his car. Not everything is about shopping we live down here.
They should ticket anyone who parks downtown. The longer this whole thing takes the more people are going to lose jobs.
Money money money.....not thinking of the well being of our community. Shame on you for promoting social gathering not social distancing.
Please start taking this seriously! Parking should be blocked, not made easier. The quicker all is shutdown, the faster we'll get through this!
"Please stay home," but we'll make parking free to tempt you to come out anyway. Mixed messages, folks.
Now that is a typical democrat move.
That’s how you get people to stay home! Free parking 😃😂🤣😂
Replace tickets with $100 bills under the wiper. How about we get some of that personal property tax back that we get robbed each year.
This is sending very mixed messages. Unless you're deemed essential, stay out of downtown.

If they know that more cases are certainly out there in the community, then why is valley health instructing nurses not to wear masks unless Covid-19 has been confirmed? Why are the nurses being put at risk? If a nurse has been with a patient who later tests positive, then that nurse could have unknowingly contracted the virus and spread it to every other patient they have seen. Valley Health is dropping the ball on this one and putting our health care people at risk!!
Why can't the star report where the cases are being found at. The Lord Fairfax health district covers 5 Counties and multiple cities.
The CDC isn't reporting anymore. The health dept is but dont have to and they are not required to report to the CDC now either.
The CDC has nothing listed in Frederick County.
If they are not reporting you are putting people at risk! Please report so people know!
Why aren't these two cases listed on the VDH website?
Not reporting what county or city is almost criminal. Your policy is not stopping the spread!!!

Grand Rental is refusing to give them a refund. Get the word out that this is NOT RIGHT and shame on Grand Rental for this type of behavior. As a local business owner myself, treating a customer in this manner is appalling to me and I will not rent equipment from this company in the future. Plenty of other rental company options that will treat their customers with more respect. I will be sure they lose more than $4k in future business lost due to how they chose to treat this customer. This is unbelievable to me. Shame on you, Grand Rental. Shame on you.
People spend way too much money on weddings (and funerals) anyway. Love does not require money. It should cost nothing to die.

Non violent probation violent or child support
Nope. Not good.

You would think they would be safer inside but the way I understood was alot of these people are work release. Alot of them work fast food and factories. They are in the general population so if they would contract it then they take it back into the building its going to be worse for them than us because they are confined

It's amazing how quickly people are willing to drop the privacy protections just to assume some safety...
If all non Essential stores and companies would stop requiring their employees to come to work, then a lot more people would stay home.
Why is the “privacy” of this woman so important. The area given is quite big. Narrow it down so people have a real chance of identifying whether they may have been in contact.
