    • The county did see a rise in coronavirus cases shortly after spring break.

While we continue to see hospitalizations and deaths, the rate is lower than before.

    • Everyone 16 and older who has not pre-registered for a vaccination is encouraged to register at vaccinate.virginia.gov or 1-877-829-4682.
    • More pharmacies are receiving COVID-19 vaccine and are offering appointments. Information is available at vaccinefinder.org.

Loudoun County Update
  • COVID-19 Update on Board of Supervisors April 20 Meeting Agenda: Loudoun County Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend will provide an update on COVID-19 in Loudoun at tonight’s (4/20/) Board of Supervisors business meeting, which begins at 5:00 p.m. The update will include the latest information on the pandemic in Loudoun, including vaccinations, cases, testing and more. 
  • Hang on to Your Vaccination Card: When you get your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, you receive a small white card with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention logo that tells you which COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it and where you received it. You take the vaccination card to your second dose appointment where the second dose is noted. That card is your tangible proof of vaccination and you don’t want to lose it. 
    • If You Lose Your Vaccination Card: You can contact the Virginia Immunization Information System by sending an email, submitting an online form or calling 1-866-375-9795. If you enrolled in v-safe, the smartphone-based, after-vaccination health checker following your first vaccine dose, you can also access your vaccination information through that tool.
    • Scam Alert: According to recent news reports, COVID-19 vaccination cards are fast becoming a target of scammers. Phony copies of the cards have been sold through online marketplaces. The National Association of Attorneys General, which represents the chief legal officers of individual states, has urged online sites to stop the sales of fake vaccination cards, saying they can endanger public health. Individuals might use the phony cards to misrepresent their vaccination status, potentially exposing others to risk.
