[ARCHIVED] March 14 - News and Information from Community Leaders

March 14, 2020

We have learned about several more incidents of coronavirus COVID-19 within the region, including one death, confirming a limited community spread. 

We as a community have the obligation to take further steps to curtail the spread, our first and most effective defense is to limit potential exposure. In that respect, Peninsula residents are urged to avoid gatherings of more than 50 people. This includes church services, civic/social organization meetings, and public events and festivities. We are a social society and as such, much of our daily lives include social interaction. Those critical needs such as grocery shopping, fueling your vehicle, and other essential tasks should not be neglected. Remember to observe the hygiene steps of washing your hands frequently, sanitizing flat surfaces, and when possible avoid close contact. 

Additional steps may be required in the coming hours and days as local officials try to slow the rate of infection thus allowing the local health system the capability to treat those who most need medical care. 

The Virginia Department of Health/Peninsula District established a public call center, That number is (757) 594-7069.
