Coronavirus (COVID-19)

What happens when there’s a positive case

Because of the surge in COVID-19 cases in Virginia Beach, contact tracing efforts by VBDPH and our Health Services team need to be temporarily modified. At this time, we are focusing on following up with known positive cases and with families and staff who have reached out and are seeking guidance because they have tested positive for COVID-19, are symptomatic, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive with COVID-19. This is a temporary modification to our process, and we will resume our usual procedures as soon as possible.

In the meantime, our dashboard will continue to be updated and families and staff will continue to get letters informing them of cases identified in school buildings.
