The Town has been made aware today that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the greater Ashland/Hanover area. We are communicating with the Virginia Health Department to learn as much as they can share to continue to work to keep our community safe.
At this time, the best advice is to continue to guard against transmission of the virus. Wash your hands often and try not to touch your face. As this situation progresses, there may be more guidance from health officials specific to businesses, sports and entertainment venues, and places of worship, but for now, please focus on simply maintaining that level of hygiene that comes from hand washing (for at least 20 seconds) with soap and water.
As we know that information in our day and age can be challenging from a pace and validity, below is a link to a public dashboard created and maintained by Henrico County (click Additional Info) that has the most up-to-date information available on the progression of the virus spread, preventative steps and links for valuable information. As more information comes available, we will share it on all the town’s media streams.
