Opioid addiction is a public health emergency.

54% of individuals who misused pain medicine got them from a friend or relative.

International Overdose Awareness Day is August 31, 2020. Join us throughout the month of August by taking part in our calendar of activities that help to raise awareness of overdose, help reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths, of substance misuse, and ways to provide support to family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, and our community.

You are safer at home and there is no way to ensure zero risk of COVID-19 when leaving home. Remember in general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.

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.

4 Things To Consider

There is no way to ensure zero risk when leaving home. In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of #COVID19 spreading. We cannot say how risky all the activities you may wish to participate in are, but we can share four important things to consider:

1. The more people you interact with the more your risk of getting COVID-19 increases. Even if someone does not appear sick, they may have COVID-19.

2, The closer you are to other people who may be infected, the greater your risk of getting sick. Indoor spaces are more risky than outdoor spaces where it might be harder to keep people apart and there is less ventilation.

3. Spending longer time with people who may be infected increases your risk of becoming infected.

4. Spending time with people who don’t wear a cloth face mask increases the risk that they could spread infection to you.
