Coronavirus( COVID-19) cases are on the rise in Northampton County. The Eastern Shore has now become a hotspot of outbreaks in Virginia. It's more important now than ever for Northampton citizens to help slow the spread of germs. 

Stop the Spread of Germs

Please stay at home and avoid unnecessary travel. If you do need to go out, please wear a face mask and 
continue to practice social distancing. 
Wash hands frequently.  If you are sick, please call your doctor before you go to the hospital or clinic. 

Call Ahead

Your cloth face covering should:

✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils

✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face

✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through

✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings.

Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.

Social Distancing
