The Fluvanna County government, sheriff’s office and the

Fluvanna County Public Schools, continue to monitor the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation. Though there are no known cases in the County, Fluvanna continues to monitor and prepare.

Residents are encouraged to consult available, credible resources to maintain awareness, and to observe healthy practices.

Those with questions may call (434) 972-6261.

“There are currently no cases of COVID-19 in our region, but this is an evolving situation,” said TJHD spokesperson Kathryn Goodman. “We’re working closely with all of our community partners to prepare for any local public health response.”

Everyone is encouraged to follow healthy practices, including:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds- sing your favorite song while


  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (only if soap and water are not available).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth – the T-Zone!
