[ 0 ] March 26, 2020 |

Latest CV-19 numbers via Nelson BOS David Parr :

As of 10am, 3/29/20, TJHD has 44 COVID-19 cases and 4 clinically diagnosed cases in the following localities:

Albemarle: 21 (includes 2 clinically diagnosed)
Charlottesville: 11 (includes 1 clinically diagnosed)
Greene: 1
Fluvanna: 3
Louisa: 9
Nelson: 2
Outside TJHD: 1 clinically diagnosed (close contact w/ TJHD positive case)

 

As of this morning, 3/28/20, TJHD has 42 positive COVID-19 cases and 4 clinically diagnosed cases. Clinically diagnosed cases = individuals who are not tested because they are very close contacts (like a spouse) to someone who is lab confirmed COVID-19 positive and are experiencing symptoms. Due to their level of exposure and symptoms, TJHD considers them positive without a COVID-19 lab test.

We consider this to be a total of 46 cases in the following localities:

 *   Albemarle – 21 (includes 2 clinically diagnosed)
 *   Charlottesville – 10 (includes 1 clinically diagnosed)
 *   Greene – 1
 *   Fluvanna – 3
 *   Louisa – 8
 *   Nelson – 2
 *   Outside TJHD – 1 clinically diagnosed (close contact to TJHD positive case)

Please note: TJHD has received many questions about individual COVID-19 cases. We value people’s privacy which is why we are not disclosing further information at this time. As the number of cases increase and we can aggregate data, we will provide more demographic and exposure information (likely in the next few days). Rest assured that TJHD is conducting thorough investigations for each COVID-19 case. Those who have been identified as exposed to a COVID-19 case will be notified by TJHD and informed of the steps necessary to remain healthy and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The number of cases in our district increases by the day. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is very much so here but there are things we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Please follow the recommendations of social distancing, proper hand hygiene, and staying home!

To help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 in Virginia, Governor Ralph Northam issued new executive orders regarding public gatherings this past week. Executive Order 53<https://www.governor.virginia.gov/newsroom/all-releases/2020/march/headline-855292-en.html> orders the closure of certain non-essential businesses, bans all gatherings – public or private – of 10 or more people, and closes all K-12 schools for the remainder of the academic year. This order went into effect at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. More information on the order can be found here<https://www.governor.virginia.gov/newsroom/all-releases/2020/march/headline-855292-en.html>.
