Henrico Board of Supervisors to Honor Richmond and Henrico Health Districts
HENRICO, VA- In honor of last week’s National Public Health Week and in recognition of Richmond and Henrico Health District’s (RHHD) pandemic response, Henrico County’s Board of Supervisors (BoS) is issuing a proclamation today honoring RHHD’s public health staff. Dr. Melissa Viray will join tonight’s BoS meeting to share some words of gratitude following the proclamation.
“The staff at RHHD have been incredibly collaborative, innovative, and dedicated to the health and safety of Henrico residents,” explained Mrs. Patricia O’Bannon, Supervisor and Chair of BoS. “From working with our County Emergency Management team to establish the Richmond Raceway as a gold star model for mass vaccination to partnering with faith communities to offer community based vaccination, testing, and education… RHHD has worked quickly and efficiently to bring resources to Henrico County.”
“I’m so proud of our teams at RHHD,” said Dr. Melissa Viray, Acting Director of RHHD. “They have demonstrated commitment to their communities; expertise in their ability to develop new programs, systems, and policies; and a high level of resiliency to be able to do it all during a challenging and evolving time.”
The public meeting is tonight, April 12, 2022 at 7:00pm and will be streamed live on the Henrico County webpage.
