Public Service Announcement
With the rising prevalence of Coronavirus (COVID 19), Governor Northam has advised for all individuals 65+ and other high-risk individuals to self-quarantine. This creates great concern for many seniors and other self-quarantined individuals in our area about how they will access groceries, medications, and other needed services or supplies. Bay Aging is working to help address these concerns by setting up our Community Volunteer and Request for Assistance link on the Bay Aging Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BayAgingVA
If you are interested in helping your neighbors stay fed and have access to much needed services/supplies during this crisis, or if you are quarantined/home-bound and need assistance, please fill out the following form and we will connect volunteers with those in need. Please note, this service is available to ANY AGE, not just seniors.
DECLARATION OF LOCAL EMERGENCY
Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency March 12, 2020 in the Commonwealth of Virginia in response to the continued spread of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.
The Governor has stated that COVID-19 is a communicable disease of public health threat, and that the anticipated effects of COVID-19 constitute a disaster as described in § 44-146.16 of the Code of Virginia. This declaration is due to the threat to the public health, safety, and welfare that has and will continue to occur in the Town of Urbanna beginning on March 30, 2020 until further notice, due to the negative health effect caused by the transmission and contracting of the COVID-19 coronavirus, creating conditions of extreme peril to the lives and property of the residents of the Town of Urbanna. The proclamation of existence of an emergency is necessary to permit the full powers of the government to deal effectively with this condition of peril.
Pursuant to the authority granted by Section 44-146.219(a) of the Code of Virginia, I, Holly Gailey, acting as the Director of Emergency Services for the Town of Urbanna, declare the existence of a local emergency as of the below stated date and time.
Date: March 30, 2020
Time: 1:00 p.m.
