Due to recent concerns regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Town of Cape Charles will be implementing Phase 1 of its Incident Action Plan. This first phase of the plan is known as an Alert Posture Protocol (APP). The APP focuses the Town’s attention on a potential threat (virus, hurricane, etc.). It includes providing information to the public about the potential threat and increases Town staff contact and interactions with other appropriate agencies (county, state, etc.). Being in APP does not significantly alter normal operations; rather it means increased vigilance.
As part of this protocol, the Town will be in close coordination with state and county officials and will pass on updates and information as it becomes available. The Town advises everyone to stay informed and to follow the CDC precautions outlined here. Currently, if these precautions are followed, the course of most normal business is still appropriate. If this situation changes, additional notifications will follow.
