There’s an app for almost everything these days which makes it hard to keep up with the latest ones our kids and teens are using. We’re sharing the top four apps our detectives see used by kids and teens when investigating a variety of cases. We encourage you to talk to your kids and teens about apps their using and remind them of these key safety tips:

• Everyone is not who they seem to be – Anyone can create an account under a different persona
• Don’t give out personal information – this includes your phone number, email address, birthday and home address
• Think before you share any photo – If you don’t want others to see it, don’t share it
• Once you share a photo, you can’t take it back - even if the app claims photos disappear
• Keep lines of communication open – encourage your kids and teens to come to you if they are being bullied or someone is making negative comments

As always, if you suspect your teen may have received or shared inappropriate content, please call our non-emergency line at 703-691-2131.

The new COVID-19 variant strains that seem to spread more easily from person to person could lead to more cases of COVID-19 in Virginia. With the threat of these new variants, it is important now more than ever to wear a mask correctly, stay at least six feet from others you do not live with, avoid crowds, wash your hands often, and get vaccinated for COVID-19 when a vaccine is available to you.

Update on COVID-19 Testing Sites Available in the Fairfax Health District
------------------------------------------------
Throughout the pandemic, the Fairfax County Health Department has focused on making COVID-19 testing readily available and equitable. In addition to the 80+ clinics and health care providers offering testing, the agency provides community testing in neighborhoods where socioeconomic factors and transportation make it difficult to access testing. The Health Department’s testing sites are open Monday through Friday in locations based on epidemiology (disease) data and input from community leaders. No appointment is necessary and testing is free of charge.

The Health Department’s testing sites are not intended for those who would like a COVID-19 test for travel, to return to work or school, or for documentation of a negative test for other purposes (e.g. hospital visits, employers or attending social events). If you need a test for any of these purposes, contact your health care provider, or any of Fairfax County’s 80+ COVID-19 testing locations.

As the region continues to receive more vaccine from Operation Warp Speed, more licensed vaccinators will be called upon to serve in the mass vaccination campaign. Since most school public health nurses have returned to schools, the Fairfax County Health Department is hiring approximately 250 vaccinators (licensed nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and pharmacists) in coming weeks to help get the COVID-19 vaccine into the arms of residents as quickly as possible. Vaccinators will be assigned to work at Health Department vaccination sites that operate six days a week, including the Fairfax County Government Center.
