Much has changed in the COVID-19 pandemic over the past six months. Most students are back in the classroom and learning in person. Although the Fairfax Health District is currently experiencing high community transmission, and the presence of the highly contagious delta variant of COVID-19, school use of layered prevention strategies can serve to limit exposure and transmission of the virus. Information, as well as the virus itself, continues to change and evolve as we learn more. The Health Department continues to work closely with our partners in the schools to prevent the spread of the illness and disinformation about COVID-19.
