Closing and Inclement Weather Information
Unless Fairfax County government is closed, the centers are open regular hours. Bus service, however, does not run when Fairfax County schools are closed or have delayed openings. If you feel that you can safely transport your family member, please call before bringing them to the center so that staff can plan accordingly.
If there is an unusual change in the weather condition during the day, the Fairfax County Government may announce the early closure of The Adult Day Health Care Center. In the event the Center closes early, you will be contacted at the emergency numbers which are on file at the center.
Emergency Preparedness Information
Each Adult Day Health Center has an Emergency Response Plan that has been designed specifically for that facility. (See the Office of Emergency Management's PDF document entitled, “Emergency Planning Guidance for Medical and Patient Care Facilities").
Both residents as well as their families should be mindful and inquire about a facility's emergency preparedness plan regarding the following:
- the actual plan
- questions about staffing
- resident information
- coordination with other resources
- the role of the family
It's important for each family in our community to be prepared for all types of emergencies. If you haven't already, please learn more about preparing yourself and your family for emergencies.
