    Volunteer Opportunity

    Governor Northam is calling on more Virginians, with and without medical backgrounds, to volunteer in the fight against COVID-19. The Virginia Department of Health's Virginia Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is looking for roughly 30,000 volunteers to join them in this effort. For more information, click HERE.
     

    Safety Precautions

    The CDC and the Governor have recommended that all Virginians wear face masks if they need to go out in public. This was recommended to help mitigate the spread of this virus. For more information from the CDC about face masks, including how to make one yourself, use this link HERE.

    If you feel that you may have contracted the virus, watch for symptoms such as:
    - Shortness of breath
    - High fever
    - Persistent coughing
    Medical officials across the globe have been advising everyone to take basic precautions to lower the risk of contracting and spreading the virus, such as:
    - Washing your hands often, for at least 20 seconds each time
    - Avoiding close contact with people (staying 6 or more feet apart)
    - Avoiding contact with people who even have just slight symptoms of feeling ill
    - Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
    - Stay at home as much as possible and practice social distancing
    - Cover all of your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
    - Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects daily
    Please read the full list of recommendations and news from the CDC by using the link HERE.

    NOW HIRING Contact Tracers

    In February, as Trump was wasting critical days by refusing to follow recommendations from intelligence and public health officials throughout his administration.

    He told his supporters at a rally

    not to worry about COVID-19, because he said -

    "It looks like by April ... when it gets a little warmer,

    it miraculously goes away."

    And now we know he knew the truth but would not act.

    As of today, 13 million Americans have become sick

    And well over quarter of a million Americans have lost their lives

    more than have died in all our wars since WW II

    —it has not gone away!

    It is currently spreading at a record rate of

    150,000 to 170,000 new cases every day!

    Infections are very widespread, anyone you meet could be

    and those you share Thanksgiving with

    Could be on a ventilator for Christmas

    Don't gather in groups, Wear a Mask!

    Fauquier County Democratic Committee stands in solidarity with our communities of color. We stand with millions of people across the country who are rightfully outraged by the killing of unarmed black people.

    If we are complacent, if we are silent, we are complicit in perpetuating the cycle of institutional racism and violence for those most marginalized in our communities.

    None of us can turn away, we must all speak out and hold each other accountable.

    The death of George Floyd, Ahmad Arbery and Breonna Taylor are not isolated incidents. They are the result of systematic racism that has existed for generations.

    These murders and the disproportionate deaths to COVID-19 in the black community are just the latest evidence that we live in an unequal world.

    As Catherine Rampell of the Washington Post says, “There are two Americas. There’s the America where people can storm a statehouse with long guns, threaten elected officials, scream into the faces of cops and can still walk away unscathed. And then there is the America where citizens can march peacefully, or stand watching from their own front porches, and get sprayed with rubber bullets and paint projectiles. All while cameras roll.”

    The cycle continues. More people die. More lives are destroyed. There are protests and promises to do better and the pattern repeats. Here in Fauquier County, some of our friends and neighbors live in fear and dare not venture out on public streets at night. How do we break this cycle? It starts with each of us. We at the Fauquier County Democratic Committee are committed to electing officials who understand this reality, will represent and uphold the rights of all people and will do the difficult work to dismantle the system of race-based oppression.

    We stand for justice. We know what it looks like. We stand together!
