What is Fluvanna County doing to prepare?

Our Incident Management Team (IMT), made up of public safety agencies and key county staff, plan for and respond to major incidents, including public health crises like COVID-19. The IMT is meeting frequently and communicating daily to address our community’s needs.

Fluvanna County’s IMT has developed a multi-phased plan, in alignment with guidance from the CDC and VDH, on what measures to take, and when, to reduce the spread of disease, and to maintain our business operations. The phases of the plan are designed to respond to what happens locally – beginning now, in the planning phase and continuing, if necessary, until there is no longer the potential of a local threat.

Fluvanna County has implemented the following measures:

For our community:

  • We want to ensure that our first responders are always ready to serve our community. We

have initiated some basic steps in efforts to keep our first responders safe. Our public safety

dispatchers will begin asking callers a few basic questions in accordance with guidance from

the International Association of Emergency Dispatchers. This is so our first responders can

take appropriate precautions to protect themselves and reduce exposure risk. Rescue squad

members may ask if you can step outside or deputies may call you prior to responding. We

remain committed to ensuring we have the appropriate resources to respond to all emergency


For our employees:

  • Enhanced cleaning protocol for county-operated buildings;
  • Cancelled work-related travel outside our community for staff, and cancelled work-related

meetings convening people from outside of our community;

  • Encourage employees experiencing respiratory symptoms to stay home;
  • Signage encouraging use of hand sanitizing stations and/or hand washing throughout the

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a wealth of resources for businesses,

households, schools, and faith-based organizations at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus. The CDC is

specifically encouraging people to:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care. Call your doctor before going into

the office if you are experiencing fever or respiratory symptoms.

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and immediately throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing

your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least

60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects (e.g., tables, countertops, light

switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles)

The Virginia Department of Health has resources for the public, travelers, schools, businesses, and large events as well – www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus.
