Our Emergency Communications Center has started receiving an influx of Coronavirus/COVID-19 related calls. We understand that this is a difficult time with confusing and conflicting information being released from multiple sources. However, we need to keep our emergency lines open for emergencies ONLY. Please do not call 9-1-1 to ask questions about Coronavirus/COVID-19 or for clarifications about the Governor's Executive Order. You can find the most up-to-date information on the City of Winchester VA - Local Government Coronavirus webpage: www.winchesterva.gov/emergency-management/coronavirus
Because the same dispatchers that take care of emergency calls are also answering calls on the non-emergency line, we kindly ask that you refrain from calling the non-emergency number for COVID-19 related questions as well.
Some frequently asked questions and clarifications:
🔴 You do not need paperwork to prove that you are going to the grocery store or seeking medical care. However, some essential businesses may give their employees paperwork stating that their employees are essential. 🔴 You will not be stopped simply for having out-of-state license plates. 🔴 There is not a curfew.
⚫️ If you are experiencing severe symptoms and are in need of medical attention, it is imperative that you describe your symptoms to the dispatcher and let them know if you think you have been exposed to Coronavirus. That information will help us protect our first responders.
⚫️ If you are experiencing mild symptoms, please do not call 9-1-1. Talk to your doctor before going to the hospital or urgent care. ... See MoreSee Less
Do my dad n I need to call 911 to leave out state due family emergency.. Life or death?
I've seen more tags from New York and New Jersey in the last few days than I've seen all year.
Wow a lot of people aren't bright if they're calling 911 to just ask a question. Common sense should easily tell you, if all you have is a "question", then it's not 911 you need to be calling.
LOL! "Driving while New Yorker"...I recall in the days of Guv'nah Wilder and NYC Mayor Dinkins blaming NYC's crime on Virginia gun laws getting pulled over by the Maryland State Police and being searched regularly..."Driving while Virginian".
Aaah. They was headed to Florida ,if they gonna get sick and die might as well be in the warmth.that is how some are thinking .
Never thought I'd see the day Virginians were asking police if they need permission slips to go to the store... this is pathetic
More incentive for the rest of us to stay safe at home
My husband and his employees who didn't live in VA had to get paperwork that they work in VA. 2 of his employees got pulled over and had to show them already
So sad people need to calm down.
People are seriously calling 911 to ask questions??😡
Tons of people leaving from FL trying to get home
Is there a non-emergency line for questions?
To make my point I had to make a grocery run yesterday and I saw a lot of New Jersey and New York license plates in traffic I don't know I'm just saying they could be asymptomatic and not even know they're spreading it
Maybe certain people coming from certain States need to be stopped at least you have their temperature taken I know it's a big over-reach but lot of people are fleeing from places that are seriously infected right now got to wrap your head around it
WPD, thank you for your continued battle to do what needs to be done in service to your community and mankind in general. I highly encourage you practice your counting skills while washing your hands, and suggest also while dealing with those that are going to expect you to become the social distance police . God bless you all.
I personally think the governor ban is a big joke I work in grocery store people coming in3 or 4 times a day to get cigarettes beer wine blunts gor to play lottery getting paid more money than they make by employment and running to the stores making more people and the employees that are working for you to have necessities not your habits make it mandatory for everyone to help spreading this virus think about other people not just your self
Hopefully this means, no more coming to Lowe’s on dates because there’s no where else open. Or coming into Lowe’s with your whole family and letting them run around.
They should monitor Lowe’s store. People buying paint and mulch!!!!!
Curious how "recreational driving" spreads the virus.
Real simple, STAY AT HOME! You can make " quick trips " to the grocery store ,drug store , and other necessary trips , but no " recreational driving". No need to be aimlessly just cruising the town. Call and check on your elderly friends,family ,neighbors, from the comfort of your home. Easy enough !
To all of the doctors in the Lord Fairfax Health District and beyond who are working endlessly to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, we thank you not only on National Doctors' Day (today, March 30) but everyday.

Good! That was a very disturbing video, and those that stood there and watched this beating take place should suffer some type of consequence as well!
I’m good with updates but this was a minor so I thought stuff couldn’t be shared? Anyway I’m glad action has been taken. That was awful.
Thanks for the update.sad seeing something like on social media..hope that young woman recovers..
Great work. Our Winchester police are the best at what they do. I love our law enforcement.
Thank you for the update.
That video was disturbing in so many ways.
I appreciate all the tough work that law enforcement do.
Good to hear this! Thank you for doing a great Job WPD!
Well done, WPD! Thanks for all you do for our community. Prayers that you all stay safe & well. 🙏❤
Thank God she's in custody. Her abuse was cruel and she needs to be punished for it. There is no sense why she did what she did. Hope they throw the book at her so she can learn her lesson. If she wanted attention, well she has it now!!!
I am so glad she is in custody! Absolutely no excuse for her behavior. She need to be held accountable!
Well with our lovely judicial system , she'll probably get a slap on the wrist and back out soon unfortunately.
I believe this was the same girl who stole a bunch of umbrellas from our restaurant over the summer. Her and her friend ran off with them. Someone recognized her and filled us in on her story. She is definitely a troubled teen who will see the likes of a jail for quite a long unless someone helps her out of her situation.
Good job arresting the person but attempted malicious wounding? They stomped on the kids head when she was on the ground. I believe that is malicious wounding and not attempt.
The subject matter was enough for me to not watch it. The idea of watching a 'vicious beating', even a video, of anyone upsets me
Okay so from the comments this young lady needs prayer as well not just punishment. She has gone wayward for what reason there could be something happening or not happening in her life. I pray for the young pets in who was injured but I pray for the girl who caused it. I also pray for her family because of the sideways looks they will get. I pray this young lady does her time and finds Jesus.
That should def be malicious Wounding for sure! That girl deserves the maximum penalty possible for what she did. Her little friends aren’t innocent either! From what I have read this isn’t her first offense.
If anyone haves anything rude to say about her contact her mother Carroll kline or David kline.
She goes to court June 1st for assault and battery against my son
You guys are doing a great job.. keep up the hard work
Keep up the good work and know that you all are always in my prayers

The WPD is investigating a shoplifting at Lowe's. We are attempting to get better images; however, we wanted to share the information in the meantime. The tags on the suspect vehicle are stolen.

Maybe show the whole car since there is no way of telling who that is from that pic.
(1) My husband was approached by this man, he asked my husband did he worked for Lowe's? My husband replied and said "NO" afterwards my husband was waiting for an associate to ask a question....in the meantime, the man ( shoplifter) was in the next aisle stealing merchandise, my husband than yelled at the shoplifter and the man proceed to run out the front doors....I was telling the associate of the shoplifter as my husband was running after him, but all my husband could do was get his vehicle description and tags.
Thank you Winchester Police Department! This is my license plate that was stolen. It had fallen off the front of my truck and until I could get screws, it sat in the corner of my window until this person thought he needed it more than I, insert eyeroll here. I received a call from Officer White this morning, and he just returned my tag. Again, Thank you Winchester PD!
Cant run the tags? That would tell who owns it and chances are if it's no the owner they know who had the vehicle
Thank You WCPD for the Information 👍 You do a great job Thank You for Service Stay Safe out there 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Since when is lowes a ESSENTIAL Job ?
And why are they so busy ? People should be home . And not out .
Obviously an employee knew of the shoplifting and called the police. What's the problem with store loss prevention and store managers/supervisors taking stealers out? Why see it happening and allow it by waiting for police to arrive? Cowardice?
Surelly there could be better pictures
I still can't believe major multi million dollar companies can't get better cameras..
That's a Plymouth Voyager it says it right on the back

Glad they didnt come to our house!! I'm sick of people thinking they can take what they want from people
Saddens me to know anyone would even think of doing something like this especially when everyone’s lives have been turned upside down. Sending well wishes to the gentleman who was violated and hoping justice will be given to to those young men that felt like this was okay to do.
It is very nice to have two dogs to let me know about the buggy man, give me time to get ready with ruger.
This is the reason why law abiding citizens should be armed and trained properly.
Always stay armed
All the pew-pew badasses on here are cute and all, but these things are generally not random. Calm down before you shoot the UPS guy or somethin'.
I hope that they get them and lock them up for life because there is enough going on now we all do need this
Welcome to come to my house. May leave with lead poisoning though
Hmmmm.....they did not abide by the laws. Very sad situation.
Enter my home and you will meet Jesus at that very moment!!

Thank You Governor Northam. For working to keep us all safe!!
Lol this was an absolute joke. He essentially closed schools, and shut down barbers and other “non-essential” businesses. For many of us, though, such as my pregnant fiancé and I, who work in RETAIL, are considered “non-essential employees” so we are still to be at work, where we are expected to maintain a 6’ distance from customers, and to have 10 ppl or less in the store at all times. How the hell are we supposed to do that, while doing our daily jobs, which can be hectic as it is?! Northam definitely could have done more to help everyone prevent the spread; instead he gerrymandered his way around it and did the bare minimum! Big shocker there folks, these are your new overlords!
Yea! More liberties and freedoms lost and taken by a government that was never granted that authority.
Everyone can't stay home. Essential employees still need to work.
Yea, thanks Governor Blackface. Thanks for putting me and others in retail who have to work in stores with skeleton crews having to stand at the door and count customers and risking exposure from the fools out shopping instead of staying at home.
Now if. Everyone would stay home...
Day late and a dollar short????

I think it is a sad day when government has to step in and do this. Why are they doing this, some people refuse to stay home. Oh I am not gonna live in fear lmfao. People it has nothing to do with fear. It is about lowering the speed of the spread. Please try wrap brain around that.
Please obey the rules so others may live. The spread of germs may not be important to you , but the germs you spread just may harm someone close to you or I. You need not " hide in you home" just limit your travels to necessary errands ,work etc. Just think of the $$$ you will save for just a few weeks of not going out for leisure activities !
I wish they would just close for the time being so we can stop this from growing! WPD. Please be safe out there.
400,000 people killed in car accidents last year, they didn't shut the highways down.
Limit theaters to 10 or close?? Might as well close if only gonna have that many in there. That's not even enough to pay a single bill, let alone the employees.
Not very smart Virginia should close it all
Does anyone care what he has to say? Did he announce closing abortion clinics during this " Trying" time.?
He needs to have them close 🤦♀️
Guess this gun hater will have to leave some of his armed protection home when he goes out.
Be smart step up and take action and close
Ridiculous. Also this is an illegal order. Northam and all other governors signing these orders is unlawful. No LEO should enforce any of these BS orders.

Hartsell is a good guy, I pray they find him safe. He is a extended family member and we are all worried.
This is my husband's great uncle. We live in Chester County PA where he has family. I've shared the post locally.
This is why dementia patients should lose driving privileges. My husband has it and the car went asap. Besides getting lost, the danger to others is horrible.
Deborah Grogan .... Barry Grogan... gentleman was last seen in York... can y’all share??? Thanks!!
If he has dementia and oxygen and other issues what is he doing driving? Pray he is found safe and gets the care he needs.
Sharing and hoping he will be found quickly and safely. Please stop judging this man and his family about why he was still driving. Dementia isn't something that you're diagnosed with one day and immediately snap and are incapable of completing daily tasks the next. They have enough to deal with trying to find him without the added negativity.
If he has dementia, could he be trying to go to places where he has been or lived or remembered from earlier time in his life? My grandmother had dementia yrs before she passed and she was always thinking of places of past
Mary Berkheiser Musser can you please share with your York, PA friends and family?
He might be going to were he live along time ago if you never deal with deminta they go back in there mind to a child i know as I'm dealing with it my husband looks for his mom and dad an pack his tools to go home so hope family will try remember were he live as a child my husband don't drive as he wouldn't know which way to go
Prayers that he found and is safe so to all my family that lives in Ohio, Pa, Maryland and everywhere get this going so it can be shared. Thanks
People with that problem shouldn't be able to drive and they should have a tracker on
To all the people asking why he's still driving. People with dementia are very unpredictable. They are not dumb by any means. They live in the past a lot. He may not have driven for a long time but if the idea pops into their head it only takes a moment for them to dissapear. Please don't point a finger if you don't know the whole story.
Someone just told us they saw a wrecked gold car on a rollback belonging to Clem's here in Stephen's City go down Main Street several hours ago with a gentleman sitting in the passenger side of the rollback
So glad he was found safe. God is good
How is he placed in New Jersey? Is it possible there is foul play at work and someone stole his identity like vehicle or credit card? Maybe he is still in Winchester area?
Winchester Police Department, I have a question. If they have spotted this precious man, why hasn't someone tried to help him?
oh my I recognize this man from the store. I sure hope that he is found safely.
Prayers that he is ok and found very soon. 🙏

To those worried about the Cashier, I am the Store Manager for the location and she is doing well. She was understandably pretty shook up by situation but is doing well. I do pray for those officers serving our community they are amazing folks. Thanks to the officers that responded, be safe out there.
Glad she wasn't injured and hope they find who did it.
I love that cashier! She is so sweet!
