The Fairfax County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continue to evaluate the risk of exposure to the public. The city is taking extra precautions to adhere to a high standard of cleanliness with all city facilities, including various equipment and transportation resources.
Even though we are wiping down equipment, countertops, surfaces, and work areas several times a day, we also need to rely on the public to follow best practices recommended by health officials:
- Practice social distancing.
- Stay home if you are unwell, so you don’t risk exposing yourself and others to potential illness.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and often.
- Use hand sanitizer as available.
- Cover your cough and sneeze.
- Review current information provided by the Fairfax County Health Department, Virginia Department of Health, and the CDC.
- Follow best practices as recommended by trusted health resources and health professionals.
This is a quickly evolving situation. It may continue for a period of time. We cannot predict the future, but we can plan for potential situations, and follow best practices.
The City of Fairfax remains committed to providing a safe and welcoming park system, municipal facilities, and services. We will do our best to keep you informed, and to apprise you of any changes or concerns.
We encourage you to use the resources we provide on the city website and to rely on the fact-based information provided by trusted sources.
