[ARCHIVED] Keep Calm and Wash Your Palms! An Update and Guidance on COVID-19


With COVID-19 /Coronavirus cases now reported in Virginia, is there a need to panic? No. 

Is there a need to be aware of COVID-19, seasonal flu, etc. and take reasonable precautions to stay healthy? Yes.

With that in mind, Campbell County officials are monitoring the public health situation closely and have operational plans in place to address any local impacts. Public Safety service providers and Public Works/Custodial crews are also following the necessary protocols and precautions to minimize potential risks to both staff and the public.

Locality leaders remind everyone of the guidance provided by the Virginia Department of Health:

  • KEEP CALM and WASH YOUR PALMS! (and the rest of your hands, of course.) Wash your hands often and thoroughly (for 20 seconds with soap and warm water). Turn off the water with a towel.

  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue or your sleeve, not your hands.

  • Always dispose of used tissues in a waste can.

  • Avoid touching your face. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

County officials also remind residents and visitors to sign-up for CodeRED notifications to receive important local health and safety information.
