Welfare/Wellness Checks

A welfare or wellness check is when police stop by a person’s home to make sure they are OK. Requests are made by friends, family and neighbors, typically after someone unexpectedly loses contact with others. In response to COVID-19, we have implemented a wellness check system. If you are concerned about someone in Town and would like to have Town police check on them, please complete the form at occoquanva.gov.

Town Elections

The Prince William Office of Elections strongly encourages voting absentee in the Town’s May elections due to the COVID019 pandemic. Voters may choose “2A My disability or illness” as the reason for absentee voting. Applications for an absentee ballot can be printed at elections.virginia.gov (the Office of Elections is working on a fillable pdf of the application). Voters who choose to vote absentee should submit an application as soon as possible to receive their ballots in time to return them by mail before Election Day, May 5.

Park Facilities

Town parks currently remain open for public use. The restrooms at River Mill Park are closed until further notice. As in all public spaces, please do not gather in groups outside of your own household and practice respectful social distancing at all times.

Business Assistance

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has declared Virginia an Economic Disaster Zone, making businesses potentially eligible for assistance. Those who are interested are encouraged to visit sba.gov/disaster. While many businesses have been forced to close temporarily, Occoquan’s website contains a directory of Town businesses that are offering online or phone ordering of gift cards/certificates, as well as merchandise/food for mailing, delivery, or pickup: occoquanva.gov/business-online-phone-pickup-offerings/.
