In its nightly email, the city continues to urge residents to stay at home, unless going out is essential. And when out, they stress the importance of maintaining six feet of distance around others.

Student Loan Relief

There is great news for Virginia college students! Recently, Governor Northam announced that those with privately-held loans can receive assistance under a new state initiative. Students in need of assistance, who cannot pay because of job loss or other reasons related to the pandemic, should contact their loan service. This initiative is also designed for students with a Federal Family Education Loan and Perkins loans. Click HERE to learn more.

Parents Encouraged to Have Their Children Receive Immunizations

Alexandria and the Health Department urge parents to have their children vaccinated for preventable diseases. Immunizations have declined by 30 percent since March. Vaccinations  protect children from illnesses like whooping cough and measles and prevent community spread. Residents are reminded that appointments with your physician/pediatrician are exempt from the stay-at-home-order.

Summer Camps and Registration Suspended

Until further notice, summer camps and registration for summer programs have been suspended. All recreation, nature, and art centers remain closed. All events are cancelled. For more detailed information, click HERE.
