Due to the local jump in confirmed COVID-19 cases, Fauquier Health on Friday afternoon implemented a zero-visitor protocol for its Warrenton hospital that went into effect immediately.

“This decision comes after the recent [new coronavirus case] trends reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH),” Fauquier Health explained.

Elective, urgent/emergent, and other scheduled procedures are not impacted and will continue as scheduled. In addition, all physician services clinics and off-campus locations — Sleep Center, Wellness Center, and Wound Healing Center — are also in operation.

Fauquier Health is reminding the public to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, avoiding large gatherings, washing your hands regularly, and wearing a mask or face covering while in public.

Located at 500 Hospital Drive in Warrenton, Fauquier Health serves the residents of Fauquier and several surrounding counties. 

It comprises the 97-bed Fauquier Hospital; Fauquier Health Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, a 113-bed long-term care and rehabilitation facility; the Villa at Suffield Meadows, which is an assisted living facility; the Wound Health Center; and a medically supervised Wellness Center offering health and wellness programs.

Fauquier Health also operates nine physician’s offices, including primary care and specialties.
