COVID 19 Information from Salem City Schools

The City of Salem School Division has been monitoring the potential spread of COVID-19 for the past few weeks, and like you, we have been processing a great deal of information. The safety of our school children, teachers and parents is always our number one priority.  Our Central Office staff and Emergency Management team members from the City of Salem are in ongoing contact with the Virginia Department of Health, the Roanoke-Alleghany Health Department, and area health professionals. We encourage you to monitor this site for official school division information. This site will be updated whenever there are new details and facts for you.  We encourage you to consult with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for specific information about the COVID-19 virus.


Where Can I Get Vaccinated?

Here is the link to the free community testing sites offered by the local health department. Please note that there are additional testing sites available at the VDH link simply put in your zip code. 


The local health department (Roanoke-Alleghany Health District) is the lead agency in our community and leaders in the Salem City School Division work closely with health care professionals in our region. In short, educators make educational decisions and health care professionals make medical decisions.
