- Thinking of Going to the Beach? Loudoun Officials Urge Caution
There have been a number of COVID-19 "hot spots" emerging at beach popular beach destinations in our region. Parents of teens participating in senior beach week or other group gatherings should be particular aware of the necessary precautions. If you’re planning a beach trip, there are steps you should take to keep your family safe and to prevent the spread of the virus from region to region:
- Stay home if you have COVID-19 symptoms, have been diagnosed with the virus or are waiting to get results. And you should stay home and monitor your health if you’ve been exposed to someone with the virus within the last 14 days.
- Know the rules: call ahead or visit the local government website for the area you plan to visit. Current rules differ in various states, and can vary even from county to county and beach to beach. States or localities may require face coverings, limit the number of people who can gather on the beach, restrict beach access during certain hours, or limit access to parking and amenities.
- At the beach, stay with your family group, and keep 6 feet away from others on the beach or in the water.
