Northern Virginia Region Level of Community Transmission: Substantial
Based on guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we recommend that everyone, including individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask in public indoor settings and continue to take other precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Learn more about the Level of Community Transmission from the Virginia Department of Health.
All five jurisdictions in Northern Virginia are working together to decrease the case count and positivity rates of COVID-19 in our communities. In the Fairfax Health District, we are currently seeing a downward trend of COVID-19 cases and our process to vaccinate children ages 5-11 has gotten off to a strong start. As our boundaries with Northern Virginia are porous and our residents live, work, play, and learn across jurisdictions, the Northern Virginia (NOVA) Health Directors will evaluate trends and relevant indicators together to make recommendation about when to consider easing mitigation strategies as a region. Currently, in the Northern Virginia Region, community transmission remains at the “substantial” level.
