In March, the county expanded the COVID-19 webpage, which was originally established in January: loudoun.gov/coronavirus. This web page contains general information about COVID-19, actions being taken by Loudoun County, and well as links to the most up-to-date information and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, the county established an email and text subscription service so that the public may choose to receive the county’s updates directly to their email or smart phone. These daily updates include Loudoun County Government-specific updates and not necessary include information about COVID-19 in other countries, for example, that is better provided by the CDC. Residents are encouraged to subscribe to these updates.
Loudoun County is actively working with the local Health Department and others in providing public information and outreach efforts using credible sources of information to stakeholders (residents and businesses) and targeted populations who may be most impacted by COVID-19. This may include written information, online information, e.g., social media, and face-to-face discussions/presentations. Members of the public who are interested in COVID-19 information should proactively seek out information online from credible sources.
