VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH COVID-19 UPDATES

For information on COVID-19, visit one of the following sites: www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus or www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

The potential public health threat posed by COVID-19 is high, both globally and to the United States. But individual risk is dependent on exposure. For the general American public, who are unlikely to be exposed to this virus at this time, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low.

VDH is closely monitoring and investigating any reports of illness potentially associated with novel coronavirus in the Commonwealth.

A Patient Under Investigation (PUI) is an individual who meets both clinical and epidemiologic criteria for COVID-19. VDH updates information about PUIs and testing results every weekday between 10-11 a.m. To protect patient confidentiality, VDH will not provide additional details about PUIs or cases.
