[ARCHIVED] County Response to COVID-19

Virginia Department of Health Logo

The recent media attention surrounding the coronavirus, or COVID-19, has created some concern within our community. Chesterfield is working with our state and regional partners to closely monitor the potential impact locally and make sure our residents, businesses and visitors are aware of the latest information.

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that was first detected in China and has now been detected in 60 locations internationally, including the United States. The symptoms may appear 2 – 14 days after exposure and may include a fever, cough and shortness of breath. At this time, the Virginia Department of Health has reported no confirmed cases in Virginia and the immediate health risk from the virus is considered low. 

While the media attention has been primarily focused on COVID-19, the health risks associated with any respiratory illness should not be forgotten. It’s still flu season and many of the recommended protocols to prevent the spread of the flu also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For the latest information on COVID-19, visit the VDH or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention websites.
