Statement from Chairman McKay

July 9, 2020
To the Fairfax County Community, Due to the pandemic and the economic crisis we are in, many in our community have been unable to pay their rent. It's disturbing that in the midst of a public health crisis of a global scale, that there are many who must also fear losing their home. I recently supported the Governor's request to further extend the moratorium on evictions by sending a letter to the Chief Judge of the Fairfax County General District Court. Unfortunately, the Courts will not be able to support this extension and eviction proceedings return tomorrow. The Board and County staff are working to keep as many people out of the eviction process as possible. Below, I outline what you need to know on evictions and the resources available. Please, if you or someone you know is unable to pay their rent, share this information with them. See below for the full July 9 edition of my newsletter.

To the Fairfax County Community, Happy (almost) 4th of July. I hope you have the opportunity to relax and have fun outside. I do want to use this opportunity however to remind residents that regardless of our entry into Phase 3, it is safer to be home, be in small groups, and to wear a mask. For example, although gatherings of up to 250 people are allowed, that doesn't mean you have to be in one. Fairfax County has put together some tips for holiday safety here.

Statement from Chairman McKay

June 30, 2020
To the Fairfax County Community, Last week, Governor Northam announced Virginia will be entering Phase 3 of reopening. Many have asked why Northern Virginia didn't delay entering Phase 3 and the answer lies in the data which I outlined in last Thursday's newsletter and in the work of the Health Department, which was detailed during today's Health and Human Services Committee meeting. We continue to improve upon the metrics that the Governor outlined at the beginning of this process. In addition, Northern Virginia acts as a region. One county can't act on its own. We have sufficient space at our hospitals, we have adequate PPE, there is testing capacity for everyone who needs it, and we are building our infrastructure to conduct contact tracing for the next year. I understand concerns however, the surges of cases in Florida and Texas are troubling. Today, Governor Northam responded by prohibiting congregating in bars. Despite this update, it is safer to stay home. Otherwise, we must continue to act to protect ourselves and our families. We all must: Wear a mask as required. Wash our hands. Practice social distancing. In preparation for entering phase 3 of reopening, my office and the Fairfax County Health Department are working to ensure vulnerable communities have access to masks. Over the last week, my office has donated 10,000 masks to Neighborhood Health, Healthworks, Culmore Clinic, Cornerstones, and CASA Virginia. We were able to do so because of the generous donation of masks from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States.
