COVID-19 numbers are increasing around the country, and the communities Sentara serves are no exceptions. Data from the Virginia Department of Health shows Hampton Roads, for example, is seeing a concerning rise in positive COVID-19 tests and hospitalizations.

Sentara urges the community to practice safe and responsible habits to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Patients and the community should follow these simple safety protocols this summer. Protect yourselves and your loved ones by:

  • Wearing a mask when in public or at work
  • Staying at least six feet away from others, especially in public places such as restaurants, retail stores, and the beach
  • Limiting outings and avoiding large social gatherings
  • Washing hands and cleaning surfaces frequently
  • Covering coughs and sneezes

These small actions will make a big difference and help avoid more drastic infection control measures in the future.
