To the Fairfax County Community,

I hope you were able to stay safe during our brush with Tropical Storm Isaias. This month the Board doesn't have any scheduled Board meetings and I will be reducing the number of email updates I send to once a week, unless there is a significant change or update that you need to know about. As news and information picks up in September, we will likely…

To the Fairfax County Community,

Due to the rise in the percentage of positive COVID-19 cases in Hampton Roads, Governor Northam announced today new public safety restrictions in that region. The increase has been primarily driven by those in their 20s and younger who have not been social distancing.

This decision, although not applicable to Northern Virginia, is a reminder…

It was a privilege today to meet with local leaders from the Latino community to discuss the issues they are facing such as the disparity in COVID-19 cases, concerns over evictions, and the pandemic's impact on small businesses.

With COVID-19 cases for example, we have come a long way since the beginning of the pandemic. Disparity still…

Today, the Board returned to in-person meetings for the first time in months now that we are in phase three of reopening. We followed strict social distancing guidelines and required that every person in the room wear a mask.

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.

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…
