A Message from Your Health District:
Our staff and vaccine clinic teams are committed to continuing the fight against COVID-19 in our communities. As we ensure completion of the 1a group, we are eager to begin vaccination of 1b groups. On Friday, January 22, 2021, our localities, with our support, will begin vaccinating their front line essential workers. On January 21, 2021 a link was added to this site for people over 65 to register. In the coming weeks, only those aged 75 and over will be scheduled as they are the most at risk for infection and death due to COVID-19. We will work with congregate settings - prisons, shelters - to schedule their staff and residents.
We currently have clinic sites at our Victoria, J. Clyde, and Ironbound locations with plans to add a York County site on January 27. Clinics operate Monday, Wednesday, and Friday by appointment only.
We ask for your patience and cooperation as we continue to work together to protect the health of our communities. Please continue to practice safe measures, such as social distancing, face mask use, and proper hygiene.
Continue to check here for vaccination updates and clinic information or call 757-594-7496 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

WORK NOTES NO LONGER PROVIDED:
Effective December 18, 2020, Hampton and Peninsula Health Districts will no longer provide negative nor positive testing results letters for employers.
This aligns with recommendations from the CDC "Employers should not require a COVID-19 test result or a healthcare provider's note for employees who are sick to validate their illness, qualify for sick leave, or to return work." (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/guidance-business-response.html#more-changes)
ONLINE COVID-19 REPORTING PORTAL:
The new COVID-19 standard adopted by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI) requires all employers to report positive cases of COVID-19 to the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
The Emergency Temporary Standard also provides that "The employer shall notify the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry within 24 hours of the discovery of three (3) or more employees present at the place of employment within a 14-day period testing positive for SARS-CoV 2 virus during that 14-day time period."
COVID-19 case reports must be filed through the Virginia Department of Health's (VDH) online reporting portal. By using this portal, these case reports will ensure VDH and DOLI reporting compliance. The new online reporting portal allows employers to submit up to 10 COVID-19 positive cases.
