The Fairfax Health District, which includes Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church, has moved to a MEDIUM COVID-19 community level. Based on the current Medium level, the CDC recommends you take the following actions:
- If you are at high risk of getting very sick, wear a high-quality mask or respirator (e.g., N95) when indoors in public.
- If you have household or social contact with someone at high risk for getting very sick, consider self-testing to detect infection before contact, and consider wearing a high-quality mask when indoors with them.
- Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, including recommended booster doses.
- Maintain ventilation improvements.
- Avoid contact with people who have suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
- Follow recommendations for isolation if you have suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
- Follow the recommendations for what to do if you are exposed to someone with COVID-19.
- People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a high-quality mask or respirator when indoors in public.
If you need a COVID-19 vaccine or booster dose, visit vaccines.gov to find a location near you. If you are unable to find a vaccine or have questions, call the Fairfax County Call Center at 703-324-7404 to make an appointment at one of the Health Department’s district office clinics.
It is not unexpected for these levels to change. We encourage everyone to continue to stay informed about COVID-19 community levels and take the appropriate action. Fairfax county community level is updated weekly on the COVID-19 Case Data Dashboard. Learn more and find additional COVID-19 community levels from the CDC.
