As the Commonwealth of Virginia and our local governments have declared states of emergency regarding COVID-19, ChamberRVA continues to coordinate with regional partners to address developments related to the coronavirus and their potential impact to businesses and the community.

We are closely monitoring and following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Virginia Department of Health, and our regional jurisdictions.

Tips for preventing the spread of COVID-19 are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization:

From Virginia:

The Virginia Department of Health has established a call center to provide general information about the coronavirus at 877-ASK-VDH3 (877-275-8343).

At this time, basic health practices at home and work remain key to slowing transmission of COVID-19:

  • Stay home if you’re sick. Stay home for 24 hours following a fever, and ensure you are fever-free without the aid of medication.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Disinfect — by wiping down — frequently touched surfaces at home, at work and at community gathering spaces.
  • Masks are not currently recommended for anyone other than infected people and health care providers

From the Region:

Localities around Central Virginia are starting to open call centers to answer citizens’ questions on the coronavirus.


The center will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. starting on March 18. The number to call is (804) 541-2391.

Henrico and Richmond

The center, operated by the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts, will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for questions about the coronavirus. The number is (804) 205-3501. For questions about Henrico County government facilities call (804) 501-5655.

The City of Richmond Office of Aging and Disability Services has opened a hotline for seniors and disabilities that may have questions or concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

The hotlines will be able to direct them to vital resources that are available through partners.
