JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. — All James City County facilities are closed to the public Friday after seven COVID-19 cases were reported in the locality.
That's the highest number of cases in one Virginia locality so far, according to the Virginia Department of Health.
County officials say all offices, facilities, recreation centers and libraries were closed to the public starting at noon Friday, March 13.
There's no word on if the county will keep their offices closed through the next few weeks. County parks will remain open. Officials will share information on the county courts when those details become available.
James City County isn't the only locality to shutter doors to its facilities. The city of Norfolk did the same thing over coronavirus concerns.
