Loudoun County COVID-19 Data Snapshot
Loudoun County Update
  • Loudoun Health Officials Encourage Self-Notification of Contacts Following COVID-19 Diagnosis: As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise in Loudoun County and across the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) have provided updated guidance to local health departments regarding COVID-19 case investigations and contract tracing prioritization strategies. Here is what you can do if you test positive for COVID-19:
    • If you test positive for COVID-19 or are diagnosed with COVID-19, you need to stay home, away from others, and monitor your health for 14 days. Contact your health care provider for guidance on caring for yourself. If you experience serious symptoms of COVID-19, such as trouble breathing, pain or pressure in the chest, and confusion, seek medical attention right away.
    • Additionally, you need to help identify and notify the people that you had close contact with while you were contagious. This will allow the people with whom you’ve been in contact to quarantine right away so that they do not spread the virus if they become ill. You are considered contagious starting two days before you became sick (or two days before a test if you never had symptoms) until you complete isolation. 
    • Get all of the details you need to know in the news release.
