Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Information for Health Care Providers
Our administration office at 10777 Main Street in Fairfax is open during regular business hours 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. Clinic services are not offered at this location.
All individuals in the Fairfax Health District who are 12+ are eligible to receive a vaccine. For information about making an appointment and walk-in options with the Health Department, please see COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Scheduling.
COVID-19 is a rapidly reportable condition in Virginia. Healthcare providers are legally required to report all suspect cases (symptomatic individuals with contact to a confirmed case) and positive lab reports to the local health department immediately.
Point of Care (POC) testing is a medical diagnostic testing conducted outside of a traditional laboratory setting at the time and place of patient care (e.g., physician’s office, pharmacy, nursing home). Report POC COVID-19 test results within 24hrs.
If you are testing a patient for coronavirus disease, please provide the following critical guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to advising the person to remain at home except when seeking medical care.
Guidance for Releasing Cases and Contacts from Home Isolation and Quarantine
Information from the Virginia Department of Health detailing the home isolation and quarantine guidelines for confirmed and suspected cases, household contacts, non-household contacts, and health care workers.
Due to COVID-19 in the community, evaluation by a healthcare provider is recommended for all sick children. This form is to be provided by the parent/guardian to the healthcare provider for completion.
Volunteer vaccinators are needed to support the continuing COVID-19 vaccination expansion. Eligible health care providers may register to volunteer as a COVID-19 vaccinator through either the newly-established Virginia Volunteer Vaccinator Registry (VVVR) or the Medical Reserve Corps.
The VVVR is a temporary COVID-19 emergency program administered by VDH and the Virginia Department of Emergency Management established through Virginia House Bill 2333. This program allows non-traditional vaccinators to now be eligible providers once they complete a short training and meet the supervision requirements if they only wish to serve during the COVID-19 response. Learn more about the VVVP and register to volunteer.
Additionally, if you are interested in volunteering with the Medical Reserve Corps as a vaccinator and have an active license as a MD/DO, Physician Assistant, Registered Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Practical Nurse, Pharmacist, Dentist, Dental Hygienist, or Veterinarian, we encourage you to register here.
