All around the world, and in the Rockbridge area, the COVID-19 virus is creating unprecedented circumstances.  At the Rockbridge Area Health Center, the health of our patients, staff and their families remains our highest priority. RAHC is working closely with community partners to monitor the evolving pandemic. We advise our patients to follow the Virginia Department of Health for daily, regional updates.

There are simple things you can do to help yourself and your community stay healthy:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Stay hydrated
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Eat healthy food
  • Practice stress relieving activities
  • If you are not feeling well, stay home, rest, and do not visit with older adults

The RAHC will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and will provide additional updates as needed.

Take good care!
