Is It Safe to Go to the Pool or Beach?

This hot July weather has many of us looking for ways to cool down – and wondering if a trip to the pool or the beach is safe right now.

It is important to remember that you are safer at home. There is no way to ensure zero risk from COVID-19 when leaving home. In general, the more people you interact with, the closer you interact with them and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread. Read more: https://bit.ly/2ZX138P

Avoiding tick bites is the best way to prevent tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease. Here are some tips:

✔️ Avoid wooded and busy areas with high grass and leaf litter.
✔️ Wear EPA-registered insect repelleant with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, IR3535, para-menthane-diol (PMD), or 2-undecanone. Read and follow label instructions.
✔️ Treat clothes and shoes with permethrin. Follow instructions and don't apply directly on your skin.
✔️ Walk down the center of trails.
✔️Tuck your shirt into your pants and tuck your pants into your socks.
✔️ Do a thorough tick check when you get home.

Why get a COVID-19 test?

1️⃣ To protect the people you care about: COVID-19 spreads easily from person to person and you do not want to make those around you sick.
2️⃣ To know what you need to do: whether or not you have symptoms, there are actions you must take to prevent further spread in your home and in the Fairfax community.
3️⃣ To help slow the pandemic in Fairfax: testing finds people who are positive and allows those individuals to take necessary steps to stop spreading the virus.

While a positive COVID-19 test may be inconvenient in the short-term, Fairfax County has resources available to help.
