THe CDC recommends delaying travel and staying home to slow the spread of COVID-19 during the holidays. Before traveling, ask yourself these important questions:

-Are you or someone you love at increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness?
-Are cases increasing in your community or your destination?
-Are hospitals in your community or destination overwhelmed?
-Does your home or destination have restrictions for travelers?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, consider making other plans. See the full list of questions: http://ow.ly/dYxX50CR61i

There’s no place like home for the holidays. Your home. Please stay home to help stop the spread of #COVID19.

We know it is hard to be away from loved ones, especially this time of year, but we need collective action now to end this pandemic. We can do it.

#COVID19 hasn’t gone anywhere. Cases are rising rapidly in many parts of the U.S. This pandemic is not over. But, if we all work together and do our part, it can be. Here’s what you can do to help protect yourself and others:

• Wear a mask over your mouth AND nose when in public.
• Stay home when you can.
• Stay at least 6 feet apart from others and avoid crowds.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.

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.
