I just read the article that the Supervisors were hearing arguments about taking control of the Library System. I am staunchly opposed to this proposition. Our Library System is a gem in Loudoun County used to educate our children at a time where parents are doing most of that, engage our citizens at a time where individuals need it, and broaden horizons during a time where we desperately need more of that. The Supervisors have shown in the past to not understand nor value these needs by closing our local library. As your constituent, I am voicing my support of the Loudoun Library Board of Trustees to keep them in control of the library system and to limit Supervisor involvement with the running of it.

The Board concluded last Wednesday’s (5/11) public hearing on a proposed local election district plan, titled LT-Revised 1 Plan, forwarding it to the June 7th business meeting without any additional changes. The Board also voted to name one of the newly redrawn districts, district 7, as the Little River District. The names of the county’s seven other election districts will remain the same. The county’s election districts were redrawn following the 2020 census to adjust election districts based on population changes over the past decade, as required by law. The population of each proposed redrawn district currently ranges between 50,468 and 54,880 residents.

The Board is scheduled to vote on the adoption of the LT- Revised 1 Plan during its scheduled business meeting on Tuesday, June 7. If adopted, the plan will be sent to the Commonwealth of Virginia for approval. If approved by the state, Loudoun County Office of Elections and Voter Registration will adjust precincts and update polling places as necessary.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Lyme disease is an infection caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted by the bite of an infected blacklegged tick. Blacklegged ticks are in all parts of Loudoun County. Ticks are commonly found in wooded areas, areas with tall grass, and on low vegetation. People of any age and in any part of Loudoun County can get Lyme disease. Infections occur throughout the year, but are more common during the late spring and summer and in people who work or play outdoors. Dogs, cats, and horses can also get Lyme disease. Take preventative measures year-around and be extra vigilant in the warmer months (April-September) when ticks are most active. For more information on Lyme disease, including prevention tips and signs and symptoms, visit: loudoun.gov/lyme.

Broad Run, I want to share several exciting events I have attended over the past few days:

Last Friday, I participated in a tour of Loudoun Water to get a better understanding of the special exception application that came before the Board on Wednesday, to allow for the construction of two 10-million-gallon wastewater storage tanks on land that is in a floodplain at the Loudoun Water treatment facility. On Friday, I also attended Thomas Balch Library's Centennial Celebration, to commemorate its one hundredth anniversary since opening in 1922 in Leesburg.

Then on Saturday, I joined Delegate David Reid and Supervisor Koran Saines in opening Dulles Greenway's annual Run The Greenway 5K and 10K Race at the Greenway’s Mainline Toll Plaza. There were over a thousand runners participating in the 5K, 10K, 800-meter Kids Fun Run, and virtual race. Run The Greenway raised over $220,000 to support twenty two participating local charities. That same morning Senator John Bell and I welcomed XCAL Shooting Sports and Fitness to the Broad Run District, located at 44950 Russell Branch Parkway in Ashburn. XCAL is a family-owned business that features modern shooting ranges, a fully equipped fitness center, spa, café, and retail store with both firearm and fitness related products.

Yesterday, I attended the grand opening event of NV Kitchen and Bath, located at 22000 Dulles Retail Plaza #178 in Sterling. NV Kitchen Bath provides remodeling services for residential homes, including, kitchen, bath, and basement finishing. To learn more about their services, visit: nvkitchenandbath.com.

Also yesterday, Loudoun Cares honored more than 100 Loudoun County volunteers across 15 categories at the Outstanding Volunteer Awards (OVAs) celebration. The annual OVAs event celebrates volunteers for their outstanding contributions to making our community a great place to live, work, and play. This year’s Broad Run District Outstanding Volunteer Awardee is Katrecia Nolen.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Loudoun County and across northern Virginia has continued to rise in recent weeks, prompting public health officials to encourage Loudoun residents to take the time to assess their individual and family risks related to the upward trend in case counts, as well as to take additional precautions if necessary. The recent upward trend in COVID-19 cases is likely related to the emergence of new Omicron sub-variants (BA.2, BA.2.12.1) and fewer people throughout the community using mitigation measures, such as masking or distancing from others. The number of COVID-19 cases in Loudoun has moved from 195 per 100,000 last week to 216 cases per 100,000 over the past seven days. Consequently, the CDC is expected to change the level of impact for Loudoun County to “medium.” Read full details here: loudoun.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=7613.

For communities with a “medium” level of impact, the CDC recommends the following individual and household-level prevention measures:

• People who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease should consult their healthcare provider and consider taking additional precautions, such as wearing masks and social distancing. Residents should also consider self-testing to detect infection before having contact with people who are at high risk of severe disease.
• Get fully vaccinated and boosted, if eligible. To find a COVID-19 vaccine provider, visit: vaccines.gov.
• Follow CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine (cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html), including getting tested if you are exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19.
