COVID-19 Update

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District (RRHD) on January 18 began to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to residents of Orange, Culpeper, Madison, Rappahannock and Fauquier counties who are age 65 years and older and to individuals age 16 to 64 who have an underlying medical condition. People may get on the list to be called for an appointment by completing an on-line survey or calling 540-308-6072. The Health District is vaccinating as many people as it can depending on the number of doses it receives and is calling people for their appointments in the order in which the survey responses were received.

In the meantime, guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that we should all continue to follow the same safety precautions:  wear a mask when you are out; wash your hands; maintain social distance of six feet; avoid social gatherings.

LOWLINC continues to provide the services it can safely provide while guarding the health and well-being of both members and volunteers. The links below take you to important information about the vaccine and what you can do to prevent infection and remain informed. We also describe the services we are able to provide our members.

The graph below tells the story of LOWLINC services during Covid-19, where socially distanced Phone Buddy friendly visits account for more than 40 percent of services. Twenty-one Volunteers are phoning 46 member households once a week for conversation and to check in on needed services. In contrast, the 24 transportation services in July represent just 25 percent of pre-Covid levels. LOWLINC has resumed most transportation services, with well-defined safety precautions for both volunteers and members in place.









LOWLINC—Living Independently in Our Community
 
LOWLINC builds community connections that enable seniors who reside at Lake of the Woods to live fully and independently in their homes for as long as possible. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) service organization that coordinates the provision of services to our members by referrals to existing community service organizations as well as through LOWLINC volunteers and vetted vendors. LOWLINC is an organization independent of the Lake of the Woods Association and any LOWLINC activities have no impact on LOWA’s annual assessment or user fees.
