As of March 19, 2020, public health officials have noted evidence of community transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus in parts of Northern Virginia. There have been no new positive cases of COVID-19 in Loudoun since the five cases previously announced.

Local governments in Northern Virginia have already taken a number of actions to promote social distancing and protect those at increased risk for severe illness. Individuals are urged to:

  • Wash hands frequently; 
  • Stay home when sick; 
  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick; 
  • Cover coughs and sneezes; 
  • Avoid crowded areas and non-essential travel if you are over age 65 or have a chronic medical condition; and
  • Follow local government social distancing guidance. For gatherings of any size, create ways to increase the distance between people to at least 6 feet in those settings.

Infectious diseases do not respect boundaries. Each individual is a critical part of the community mitigation strategy, in addition to government action at the local, state and federal levels. 

Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.

  • Visit for more information about how to protect yourself and your family and to sign up for email and text updates on COVID-19. 
  • Text LCCOVID19 to 888777 to receive text alerts from Loudoun County about COVID-19. 

Residents with questions about COVID-19 may call the Loudoun County Health Department’s information line, 703-737-8300, or send an email
