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.

During these uncertain times, it can be challenging to balance work, self care, children and schooling. These tips may help if your kids come to you with concerns or questions about COVID-19:

🙋 Give truthful and appropriate information for the age and developmental level of the child.

⛑ Keep information simple and remind them safety officials are working hard to keep them safe and healthy.

✅ Teach kids everyday actions they can do to reduce the spread of germs: hand-washing, coughing or sneezing into a tissue or their elbow, and staying away from people who are sick.

Caregivers: Older adults and people with severe chronic health conditions may be at higher risk for more serious COVID19 illness. Watch for symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, and for emergency warning signs.

More tips below ⤵️

Caregivers: Know what to do in case of a COVID-19 outbreak in your community:
• Know what medications your loved one is taking and see if you can help them have extra on hand.
• Monitor food and other medical supplies (oxygen, incontinence, dialysis, wound care) needed and create a back-up plan.
• If you care for a loved one living in a care facility, monitor the situation, ask about the health of the other residents frequently and know the protocol if there is an outbreak.
