Alexandria Prepares As Flu Spreads

As flu activity continues to increase locally and across the U.S., the Alexandria Health Department is working closely with community healthcare providers to monitor flu cases and ensure they are prepared. It’s important to also follow a few simple steps to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community. 1) Protect yourself and others by getting a flu vaccine every year. Everyone six months of age and older should be vaccinated. 2) Prevent the spread of germs by coughing and sneezing into your sleeve. 3) Stay home when you are sick and wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.


Homebuyer Education Outreach Program

The City has organized a number of free education and outreach sessions for first time homebuyers.  All sessions are open to the public and will be conducted by volunteer housing industry experts certified by the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA).   First, homebuyer training seminars will be held at the Burke Branch Library, 4701 Seminary Rd., on January 31, February 7, March 25, April 11, May 9 and June 6.  The seminars will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Advanced registration is requested and may be completed at www.HomeSeminar.org. Second, three VHDA homebuyer training classes are scheduled for February 16, March 2, and April 13.  These six-hour classes will be held at Charles Houston Recreation Center, 901 Wythe St., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  To register, call Judy at Union Mortgage Group at 703.621.7900.  Finally, the City will also be participating in the Northern Virginia Housing Expo to be held March 16, 10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School, 7930 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church.  This regional event, in its third year, showcases homeownership and rental opportunities throughout Northern Virginia.  For more information on any of these events, contact Shane Cochran at the City’s Office of Housing at 703.746.4990.
