Local emergency declared in Pulaski County due to COVID-19

Although no cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the New River Health District at this time, the threat of COVID-19 is of sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant a coordinated local government action to prevent or subsequently alleviate the damage, loss, hardship, or suffering caused by the existence of this communicable disease of public health threat; and, due to the potential spread of COVID-19 and the potential for substantial injury or harm to the population, the Director of Emergency Management of Pulaski County finds the potential spread of COVID-19 to constitute an emergency throughout the County of Pulaski, Virginia.
