Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID 19)

As individuals, families, and institutions in Giles County and surrounding areas confront Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID 19) and its potential effects on our community, the Town of Pearisburg is providing this information update. 

The Town of Pearisburg Administrative offices and the Pearisburg Public Library are operating on regular schedules. Increased sanitation of offices and high use areas is in effect. 

Parks & Recreation has suspended all sports programming through April 1. 

The Pearisburg Public Library has cancelled all programs through April 1. Please note that computer access may be limited to comply with social distancing recommendations from the CDC (Center for Disease Control). 

Plastic bag collection is temporarily suspended for ALL Town drop off locations. 

What YOU can do: 

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often. 

  • Cough/sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. 

  • If you are sick - stay at home. 

  • Avoid individuals who are ill, if possible.

  • Practice social distancing (no kissing, handshaking, etc.)

  • Pay bills online where possible. 

  • Drop off bill payments and return books in drop boxes. 

  • Finally: PREPARE, DON’T PANIC. Be considerate that other people also need supplies. Hoarding can actually create a more unsafe environment. 

We will continue to share more information as it becomes available.
