(WJHL) – Officials with the Virginia Department of Health confirmed Tuesday that they are advising people to self-quarantine after visiting Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
That confirmation came from Virginia Department of Health’s Dr. Molly O’Dell.
On Monday, officials at Ballad Health urged caution ahead of a major holiday weekend where people may travel to tourist destinations like Myrtle Beach.
Ballad Health CEO Alan Levine said Monday, “If you choose to travel, I implore you to do so safely. Research where you are going to assess the COVID-19 risk, wear your mask and avoid large groups of people. And when you return, monitor yourself for symptoms for at least 14 days, and do everything possible to limit your exposure to others, especially high-risk individuals.”
