During a Thursday news conference with Warren County officials, Lord Fairfax Health District Director Dr. Colin Greene urged citizens to not “be a vector” and avoid unnecessary travel.
“Minimize the number and duration of close human contacts outside your household. That’s the ticket to victory. Stay home as much as possible. You can’t infect new people from your home,” he said.
In response to the virus, Warren County officials via a news release encouraged citizens to sign up for the Smart911 national safety profile registry. This free service allows personal medical information to be uploaded to a profile, which emergency responders can access before arriving at a scene.
