The 17 localities that comprise the Hampton Roads region, coordinated by the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC), have come together to produce and launch a public information campaign, "It's in Our Hands," to promote behaviors to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Hampton Roads.
The print media and social media campaign includes a 1:13 minute video and several social-media ready graphics. The video mentions the behaviors necessary to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and then highlights popular activities/events from each of the 17 HRPDC localities with either a photo or a short video clip for each activity.
"The campaign reminds residents and visitors to follow essential behaviors such as wearing a mask, keeping 6 feet apart, washing hands, and sanitizing high-touch areas to help reduce the risk of coronavirus infection within our community," said Danielle Spach, HRPDC All-Hazards Emergency Planner. "By following CDC guidelines, we all can help get back to the things we love within the region such as attending amusement parks, local festivals, concerts, and sporting events."
Starting today, residents will see these graphics and the video on locality websites, local information stations, social media platforms, and locally owned billboards.
