The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from a person before they have symptoms. Take action to slow the spread by wearing a cloth face covering in public spaces, keeping at least 6 feet of physical distance, and frequently washing your hands.
A cloth face covering can be made from items around your home, such as a scarf or cloth napkin. Make sure the covering reaches above your nose and below your chin.

Fairfax County Asks Residents to Follow State’s Stay at Home Order
-------------------------------
Fairfax County strongly urges residents to follow the stay-at-home order issued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam today.

This order is critical to help slow the spread of the coronavirus as cases continue to climb across the state with 225 confirmed cases in the Fairfax County Health District. Social distancing is the most effective method to limit the disease’s transmission.

The governor’s action, which currently remains in effect until June 10, means that residents should stay in homes with only a few exceptions for essential activities, including:

✅ Getting groceries or medicines.
✅ Caring for a sick family member or friend.
✅ Getting medical care for yourself.
✅ Going outside for exercise for yourself or pets (although not in groups larger than 10 people).
✅ Getting necessary social or government services.
✅ Traveling to and from work or place of worship.

Do not go out unless you need to go out.
