One of the easiest ways to keep yourself and your loved ones safe from #COVID19, the flu, and other illnesses is to wash your hands. Remember: scrub for 20+ seconds with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren't available.

This is how we feel inside when we see you distancing and wearing masks.

It's also how we feel about heading into the weekend after 2 days of emergency vehicle operations training with our friends at @ArlingtonVAFD and @PFPAOfficial.

Whatever you do this weekend, do it well!

El rastreo de contactos es un proceso que utiliza el departamento de salud del condado de Arlington para ayudar a controlar y prevenir la propagación del COVID-19.

Solo un representante de la División de Salud Pública del Condado de Arlington (ACPHD) lo llamará. Si sospecha de alguna llamada o forma de contacto que cree que no es del gobierno del condado de Arlington, anote la información de la persona que llama, cuelgue y llame a la línea directa de ACPHD COVID-19 al 703-228-7999. Pídale al operador que lo transfiera a un miembro del equipo de rastreo de contactos. https://health.arlingtonva.us/contact-tracing-faq-covid-19/

Always share your LOCATION first if you need to call 9-1-1. The system doesn't work like a GPS, so you need to tell dispatchers where you are so they can send help. If you don't know your address, share landmarks like stores or cross streets to help them find you. #911

According to the VDH LiveWell and CDC, handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from illness. Washing hands can keep you healthy and prevent the spread of respiratory and diarrheal infections from one person to the next.

This is especially important after you have been in a public place and touched an item or surface that may be frequently touched by other people, such as door handles, tables, gas pumps, shopping carts, or electronic cashier registers/screens, etc.

Do not underestimate this great tool in our fight against COVID-19 #StayPositive #TestNegative

Arlington County Medical Reserve Corps

The Arlington County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) unit was established in 2003, and is one of 24 MRC units in Virginia. There are approximately 850 MRC units nationwide. The MRC includes medical, public health, and non-medical volunteers, such as physicians, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians interpreters, chaplains, administrative staff, students, and many others. The need for the Medical Reserve Corps became apparent after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, when thousands of medical and public health professionals, eager to volunteer in support of emergency relief activities, found that there was no organized approach to channel their efforts. Local responders were already overwhelmed and did not have a way to identify and manage these spontaneous volunteers, and many highly skilled people were turned away. As a result, the MRC was created in 2002 to provide a way to recruit, train, and activate volunteers to respond to community health needs, including disasters and other public health emergencies.
