Everyone Must Do Their Part: Mayor Urges Compliance to Stop the Spread of COVID-19

Businesses in violation of Governor Northam’s Executive Order may be charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor, which in punishable by up to 12 months in jail, a fine of up to $2,500, or both.

However, if you must go out, it doesn’t matter whether you are walking along the boardwalk, standing in line for food at a restaurant or shopping inside a home improvement store. Do not congregate in groups and keep six feet away from other people. It is as simple–and as important–as that if we are going to contain the outbreak.

Sentara Healthcare warns people about COVID-19 in-home testing scam

Story at 13NewsNow.com

In one of its COVID-19 email updates, Sentara said: “We are heartsick that in the midst of a national health crisis, scammers would use our name to prey on worried people.”

Sentara said the person who got the call contacted it, and Sentara, in turn, reached out to police

“Sentara Healthcare said Thursday test results for the coronavirus could take 10 or more days”

Story at SouthsideDaily.com:

Young said there is a very small percentage of tests being sent to the state lab because the Virginia Department of Health requires patients tested to meet certain criteria, such as travel history and particular symptoms.

People who don’t meet the criteria have to look to private labs for answers which creates a backlog.

Our Volunteers are now required to wear a face mask on every call.
