Greensville County is monitoring developments on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and taking any
precautionary measures possible. Currently, there are no known confirmed cases of COVID-19 in
Greensville County or in Virginia.


Greensville County residents seeking general information about COVID-19 are encouraged to visit the
Virginia Department of Health (http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/surveillance-and-investigation/novel-
coronavirus/) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-
ncov/index.html) websites for the most current information.

Our Buildings & Ground Custodial Department pay daily attention to common touchpoints in our
buildings, ensure proper hygiene supplies are available and adhere to proper disinfection
protocols. Our Public Transportation staff adhere to proper disinfection protocols of our buses on
a daily basis.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, the following is
recommended in preventing illness:

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder,
CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory
diseases, including:

•     Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
•     Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
•     Stay home when you are sick.
•     Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning
spray or wipe.
•     Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
                CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from
                 respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
                 Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are
                 taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the
bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

                  If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least
                 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
