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

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.

With all the COVID-19 related stressors in our lives right now, it is important that parents recognize and support their children’s social and emotional needs. It’s good for parents to find ways to communicate and engage with their children to give them a sense of security and stability, but sometimes that can be challenging.
