New Report Details the State of Eviction in Alexandria, Provides Recommendations To Address the Issue

ALIVE! has been working with the Alexandria Eviction Prevention Partnership and Racial Equity Partners to assess the state of eviction prevention in our city. We just released a report that examines eviction, its causes, and strategies to help people in Alexandria remain in their homes.

Increased outreach and communication is key if we want to connect people in crisis with the programs that help those seeking emergency assistance. More will be needed if we want to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community remain safely housed.

If you suspect you might be infected with COVID-19, please do not visit the emergency room for a COVID-19 test. Instead seek out a community testing site or a home test kit. Inova Emergency Departments are prioritizing patients with medical conditions requiring emergency care and those with critical illness. We strongly discourage patients who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms from coming to the emergency room so we may preserve resources for those in our community with emergent medical needs.

An Inova COVID-19 Vehicle-Side Testing Center is open M - F, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., in Falls Church, VA. We will provide PCR testing only, no rapid antigen testing is currently available. Asymptomatic patients or individuals who have been exposed to COVID-19 without symptoms will not be tested. Appointments are required, please call us for an appointment at 571-472-6843.
