The City of Petersburg is encouraging City employees and community members to heed necessary precautions to minimize the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).


Though the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has assessed the potential public health threat as high both globally and in the United States, the immediate health risk to the general American public is considered low at this time.


Currently, the Commonwealth of Virginia has zero confirmed cases. The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is in constant communication with local health districts, authorities in other states, the CDC and other partners.


The best defense against the virus is rigorous personal hygiene, including frequent handwashing with antibacterial soap for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face and always cover coughs and sneezes to minimize airborne pathogens.
