SPRINGFIELD, Va. (WJLA) — The symptoms usually start with a cough.

Retirement Community has gotten 55 residents sick. Twenty have been
hospitalized -- some with pneumonia -- and two people have died.
2 dead, 20 hospitalized by respiratory virus outbreak at Va. retirement
Dr. Benjamin Schwartz is the director of epidemiology at the Fairfax County
Health Department. He says the county has seen similar outbreaks but they’
re usually influenza in the winter.
“Our most important concern right now is ensuring the safety of other
residents who are there,” said Dr. Schwartz.
The outbreak has only been reported in the assisted living and skilled
nursing facilities, but the retirement center’s management is still telling
residents visitation is suspended until further notice, and no Garden Ridge
residents, healthy or sick, should leave their respective neighborhoods.
Dr. Schwartz says the community is taking proper steps and thoroughly
cleaning the facility while Inova Health and the Center for Disease Control
and Prevention work to figure out what kind of a virus this is and how it is
“These panels have looked for several of the most common pathogens and they
have been negative so far,” said Dr. Schwartz.
