Fairfax County Health Department Announces Four New “Presumptive Positive” Cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
March 14, 2020
Note: These cases are included in the total that was reported on the Virginia Department of Health COVID-19 webpage today.

The Fairfax County Health Department is reporting four additional presumptive positive cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Fairfax County.

Information about the additional cases:

Three individuals from the same household are close contacts to a presumptive positive case that was previously announced on March 12. They came to our attention as part of a contact investigation in that case. Specimens were collected on the three individuals on March 12 and sent to the Virginia state lab for testing. Everyone is currently doing well and isolating at home.
One of the individuals is a Fairfax County Public Schools teacher at Lynbrook Elementary School. The Fairfax County Health Department is conducting an investigation to identify individuals who are at risk of exposure and will be contacting those individuals directly to provide further guidance and testing if necessary.
“At this time, there is no evidence of sustained community spread of the novel coronavirus and the risk to the general FCPS community remains low,” said Dr. Gloria Addo-Ayensu, Director of Health with the Fairfax County Health Department.

The fourth case is an individual in his 70s who traveled on a similar Nile River cruise as other positive COVID-19 patients. The individual sought care on March 10 and was hospitalized. Specimens were collected and sent to the Virginia state laboratory for testing. The individual is doing well and now isolating at home.
The Health Department is working closely with the Virginia Department of Health and local health care providers to identify additional people who came in close contact with these individuals in order to decrease the spread of the illness. Those identified as close contacts will be self-quarantined and actively monitored for fever and respiratory symptoms. If they start experiencing symptoms, they will immediately undergo testing.

The total number of cases in the Fairfax Health District is now 10. The results are considered presumptive, pending confirmation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which has not yet occurred for any of the cases.

The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 can cause mild to more severe respiratory illness. Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Symptoms appear within 14 days of being exposed to an infectious person. COVID-19 spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

The Health Department recommends that the public do the following to protect themselves and others from respiratory illnesses:

Individuals at increased risk for severe illness, including pregnant women, older adults and persons of any age with underlying health conditions should avoid non-essential travel, public gatherings, or places where large groups of people congregate, such as ticketed events (such as theaters, concert halls, and sporting events).
Avoid travel to all areas where there are outbreaks of COVID-19.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
If you are mildly sick with a fever, stay home until you have been fever-free for 24 hours, except to get medical care.
Those with high risk factors and who have fever or new or worsening cough, should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick. Call ahead to let them know of your symptoms.
Always check with trusted sources for the latest accurate information about COVID-19.
This is a rapidly changing situation, and information is being shared as it becomes available.

Dear FCPS Families and Staff,

Fairfax County Public Schools has been notified by the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) that a staff member at Lynbrook Elementary School has tested presumptive positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The staff member is recovering at home and we wish our staff member a quick recovery. This is the first confirmed FCPS-related case.

We are working closely with the Health Department to identify individuals who may have been in contact with the staff member. The Health Department will be working to provide further guidance and monitoring. More information regarding this situation is posted on the Health Department’s website here. At this time, there is no evidence of sustained community spread of the novel coronavirus and the risk to the general FCPS community remains low.

FCPS was closed on Friday, March 13. Schools are scheduled to be open on Monday, March 16, to allow students to gather their belongings and for the distribution of laptops to some of our students; those activities will continue. However, Lynbrook Elementary will not be open on Monday. Lynbrook staff will coordinate directly with their families to make these arrangements.

The school building will remain closed while it is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

We will continue to work with our local and state health and government officials to navigate this evolving situation and provide supports. Thank you for all you are doing to stay healthy and informed.

All updates and information about COVID-19 will be posted on the FCPS website.
