A Message from Dr. Avula

On March 30th, Governor Northam issued a Stay-At-Home order for the entire Commonwealth to slow the spread of COVID-19 and help as many Virginians as possible stay safe and well. While it presents many challenges for our businesses, schools, and day-to-day life, we are counting on each other to make it to the other side of this emergency.

  • STAY home to slow the spread of COVID-19
  • REMAIN six feet apart when you have no choice but to be in public
  • CONNECT with others on phone, social media, or video chat

This is a difficult time for everyone in our region, but we are strong and resilient and can fight COVID-19 together. #StayHomeRVA
