Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Page Last Updated: September 23


Current Transmission Level: HIGH

Based on updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we recommend that everyone, including individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask in public indoor settings. 

As the number of COVID-19 cases has continued to increase with the spread of the Delta variant, this recommendation is based on the Fairfax Health District moving from substantial level of COVID-19 transmission to high transmission.


Booster Doses

The Fairfax County Health Department is waiting for further guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Virginia Department of Health (VDH) regarding booster doses for the COVID-19 vaccine. For additional information, please see this situation summary from VDH.

At this time, third doses will continue to be provided solely to people with immunocompromised systems.

We will keep the community updated. Thank you for your patience while we are waiting for guidance.
