[ 2 ] April 2, 2020 |

 

Thanks to Nelson Board of Supervisors David Parr & Jesse Rutherford for providing this information daily. 

For the absolute latest CV-19 number please visit or BRL Facebook page here or TJHD here.

From TJHD – IMPORTANT UPDATE:  TJHD has 117 cases as of today 4/9/20.
We previously reported 123 cases by accident because we added the clinically diagnosed cases instead of counting them in the case numbers. We sincerely apologize for this confusion. All cases are accounted for and the correct numbers are listed below.

As of today, 4/9/20, TJHD has 123 COVID-19 cases (including 6 clinically diagnosed*):

*   Albemarle: 47 (including 5 clinically diagnosed)
*   Charlottesville: 29 (including 1 clinically diagnosed)
*   Fluvanna: 14
*   Greene: 3 (previously reported 4 but there was a duplicate report so it is actually 3 cases)
*   Louisa: 20
*   Nelson: 4

*Clinically diagnosed cases = individuals who are not tested because they are very close contacts (e.g. spouse) to someone who is lab confirmed COVID-19 positive & are experiencing symptoms. Due to their level of exposure & symptoms, TJHD considers them positive w/out a COVID-19 lab test.

As a reminder, TJHD is hosting a live Town Hall tomorrow (Friday) at 3:00 PM. Visit www.charlottesville.org/zoom <http://www.charlottesville.org/zoom> for more info.

Verbatim release from VSP Richmond:

 

VIRGINIA STATE POLICE ENFORCEMENT PRACTICES OF GOVERNOR’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND DIRECTIVES

RICHMOND – The Virginia State Police encourages all Virginians to adhere to Virginia Governor Northam’s directives and do their part by staying home in order to best mitigate the exposure and spread of COVID-19 within the Commonwealth. State troopers, for their personal protection and for the safety of the public, are minimizing their direct contact with the public. All Department recruitment events, public presentations, training, ceremonies, etc., have all been canceled or postponed through June 10, 2020.

 

Governor Northam has directed state and local law enforcement to initially address violations of the following Executive Order 53 and Executive Order 55 directives with education and warnings. Persistent violation of these Executive Order (EO) directives can result in an individual(s) or business being charged with a class one misdemeanor, which carries up to a year in jail and $2,500 fine:

  • Prohibition of all public and private in-person, indoor and outdoor gatherings of more than 10 individuals – with the exception of the operation of businesses not required to close under EO 53 and the gathering of family members living in the same residence;
  • Closure of all dining and congregation areas in restaurants, dining establishments, food courts, breweries, microbreweries, distilleries, wineries, tasting rooms and farmers markets;
  •     Any brick and mortar retail business (not listed in paragraph 5 of EO 53) failing to limit all in-person shopping to no more than 10 patrons per establishment. If any such business cannot adhere to the 10-patron limit with proper social distancing requirements, it must close.
  • Closure of all public access to recreational and entertainment businesses;
  • Closure of public beaches for all activity, except for exercising and fishing;
  • Cancellation of in-person classes and instruction at institutions of higher education;
  • Cessation of all reservations for overnight stays of less than 14 nights at all privately-owned campgrounds

 

Virginia State Police have been and will continue to assess Virginia EO violations on a case-by-case basis.

 

State police is required to uphold the laws of the Commonwealth and will continue to have a visible presence within our communities and on the roads for the safety of those living, working and traveling in Virginia. The law still requires law enforcement to have reasonable suspicion to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle. Virginia State Police will not be making random traffic stops on vehicles nor conducting checkpoints to determine if a driver is traveling for a permissible reason, as granted by EO 53 and EO 55.

 

The current Governor’s Executive Orders related to COVID-19:

  • Do not require an individual to carry documentation related to one’s purpose of travel;
  • Do not close Virginia roads/interstates to Virginia residents;
  • Do not restrict non-Virginia residents from traveling into and/or through Virginia;
  • Do not prevent Virginians from traveling out of the state. State police does encourage any Virginian(s) traveling out-of-state to check, in advance, the other state(s) for any travel restrictions in effect for that state(s). Governor Northam has advised Virginians returning from out-of-state and/or international travel to self-quarantine for at least 14 days.

  1. Hi,

    Not to be critical, I note that appreciation is expressed for the reporting of statistics for local Covid-19 cases on a daily basis. Yet the image shown indicates it hasn’t been updated for a full week (April 1st, today being April 8th). Will it be updated soon? Also, is there any commentary concerning why the number for Nelson County, is so low? Thanks.

  2. Tommy says:

    Hi Vincent, we update on the site as often as possible. There have been some issues with what TJHD has been reporting lately so we have intentionally paused until they get the detailed numbers / tracking resolved. Our Facebook page is updated almost instantly when the numbers come out. You don’t have to have a Facebook account to see that content. It’s public. No ideas on why Nelson is lower than others than it’s a pretty widely sparsely populated area which may also help. Tommy
