5 Things To Know About Coronavirus Variants 
(From Virginia Department of Health, April 7, 2021)
1.    Current COVID-19 variants of concern spread more rapidly and some cause more severe illness.
2.    Rapid spread could lead to more cases, more deaths, and could overwhelm hospitals and healthcare resources.
3.    The more the COVID-19 virus circulates, the greater the chances that new mutations or variants can develop.
4.    Variants of concern have been identified in Virginia and are likely more common in our communities than the number of reported cases suggest.
5.    Public health recommendations to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 will also work to protect us from these new variants. Keep yourself and others safer by: 
o    Wearing a mask that covers your nose and mouth when you are around people not in your own household, even if you are outside
o    Staying at least 6 feet apart from other people when possible
o    Keeping away from large crowds
o    Washing your hands often
o    Getting the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s your turn
Make Sure Your Mask Works the Best It Can
From the CDC
1. Make sure your mask fits snugly against your face. Gaps can let air with respiratory droplets leak in and out around the edges of the mask
 
2. Pick a mask with layers to keep your respiratory droplets in and others’ out. A mask with layers will stop more respiratory droplets getting inside your mask or escaping from your mask if you are sick.
