Loudoun County Update
  • Health Director Provides COVID-19 Update: Loudoun County Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend provided an update on COVID-19 to the Board of Supervisors Tuesday night (5/18/21). A few key points. 
    • The numbers continue to go in the right direction. While case numbers are declining (fewer than 20 a day on average), vaccination numbers are rising. About 70 percent of the adult population in Loudoun has received one dose of vaccine, while close to 50% of adults are considered fully vaccinated. 
    • Dr. Goodfriend said that now is the best time for people who have not been vaccinated to make an appointment. There is plenty of vaccine available. 
    • Dr. Goodfriend pointed out that one of the best reasons to be fully vaccinated is that you can do more things more safely than people who are not vaccinated. A tangible difference is if you do come in contact with someone who has COVID-19 and you’re fully vaccinated, you don’t have to quarantine for 14 days.

  • VDH Dashboard Update: The Virginia Department of Health's (VDH) COVID-19 Vaccine Data Dashboard looks a little different today. It’s been updated to reflect federal doses administered in the total number and percentage of Virginians vaccinated, as well as the number and percentage of adults vaccinated. VDH previously reported the number of vaccines administered by the federal government in Virginia in a separate tab of the dashboard. For Wednesday’s report, nearly 385,000 doses administered by the Department of Defense, Veterans Health Administration, Bureau of Prisons and Indian Health Service were added to the statewide total. VDH also added new metrics showing the number and percentage of people aged 18 and older who are vaccinated. 
  • COVID-19 Testing Next Week: Loudoun County will hold another free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing event Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., at the Dulles South Recreation & Community Center, 24950 Riding Center Drive, South Riding.
