Fauquier remains without positive coronavirus case

Click above to watch governor’s coronavirus update at 11 a.m. Sunday, March 22.
Four of the seven neighboring counties have confirmed cases.
I know that most Virginians are hearing this message, and I thank you all for doing your part. But, I also know that some people are not listening and I want you to know you are putting every single on of us in Virginia at risk.
— Gov. Ralph Northam
Virginia has 219 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with three deaths, state officials announced Sunday morning.

Fauquier remains without a confirmed infection, while four of seven neighboring counties — Culpeper, Loudoun, Prince William and Stafford — have cases.

In his daily news conference, Gov. Ralph Northam updated the situation and said Virginia leaders meet at 7:30 each morning to review and to plan.

Gov. Northam said a range of possible actions remain available, depending on the situation. State leaders review the number and location of confirmed cases, along with the number of patients in hospitals as part of their planning, he explained.

The Virginia Department of Health has about 1,000 test kits available and private testing continues to become more available, said Dr. Lilian Peake, the state epidemiologist

The state’s prison system has reported no positive case but has tested no inmate after screening some for symptoms, Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian J. Moran said.

The governor will conduct the daily public briefing at 2 p.m., starting Monday, March 22, he announced.

HC - "Bozo the Clown would handle this better."

Bozo the Clown (i.e. Trump) didn't handle this at all when the government knew back in December 2019 about Wuhan, China and an outbreak of a new virus as reported by WHO and our own intelligence, and look where that has gotten us.

We know what the majority of the Richmond politicians under Northams guidance spent their entire session doing which they must believe was more important than putting a strategy together to protect and test "all" Virginia residents from this deadly virus as other governors and state elected officials did. During his first press conference he had his health director state that they had no tests and the Virginia citizens had to depend on their private must vote........

We need our old non-profit Hospital back, not the current big cash register on hospital hill.

Non-profit hospitals work very, very well with national, state and local governments to make proper decisions regardless of profit in emergencies like we are experiencing now. The proper health decisions here are being made by Fauquier Hospital shareholders.

I’m happy to see Fauquier Hospital closed all but 2 of their entrances. Not much more done there.

I wish someone in the Fauquier government or hospital would step up and take the lead.

The activities of doctors and researchers are very important now. training for a doctor lasts 6 years and this is one of the hardest things. medical students often do not have enough time for entertainment and personal life. They are forced to study to pass exams. To help students with essays, we can advise them on the . Experienced writers will write an essay on any topic!

The public health officials need to be called out. Fauquier County was not being tested or reported to the CDC. Where are our leaders? 1000 test kits in the state of Virginia. How many people were sick in Jan and Feb and not being tested for CV. Piedmont physicians need to report just how many patients they saw with CV symptoms. Hazemats suits are being worn to test now. How many Fauquier residents have been hospitalized or had pneumonia?

How many people had the symptoms and were told that they didn't qualify to even be tested?

But let's be honest....
How many of Fauquier County residents have been sick and either went to Wellness Center or Piedmont with the same symptoms of CV but were not tested? Something went around Fauquier County in Feb. Ask the question. How many patients were seen over the past month that tested negative for the flu(s) and did not get a test for CV. How many. The residents of FC deserve to know. Are they being tested now?
