March 3, 2020 Update

Stafford County is continuing to monitor COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and is coordinating with the Rappahannock Area Health District. Currently, there are no diagnosed cases in Virginia. As of March 3, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported the potential public health threat posed by COVID-19 is very high, to the United States and globally. At this time, however, the CDC went on to say most people in the United States will have little immediate risk of exposure to this virus. This virus is NOT currently spreading widely in the United States. Links to relevant information are listed below. The link to the CDC includes a regularly updated map with the status of each state and cases in that state. As more information becomes available, this page will be updated.

The Rappahannock Area Health District makes the following recommendations for the public:

  • It is not too late to get a flu vaccine. Follow healthy practices of washing hands frequently, practicing cough hygiene and staying home when sick.
  • Practice proper infection control measures at home, school and work. This includes washing your hands frequently, covering your cough (into a tissue or your sleeve), and staying home from work/school if you are ill.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill. Also, avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes.
  • If you are considering travel, please see the CDC’s travel website regarding coronavirus at http://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers for more info.
  • If you have been in China, or have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you may face some limitations on your movement and activity. Please follow the health department instructions during this time. Your cooperation is integral to the ongoing public health response to COVID-19.
