Athletic Services and Community Use Scheduling

Athletic Services and Community Use Scheduling is responsible for ensuring the efficient and equitable use of 852 athletic fields (including 92 synthetic turf fields) and 250 gymnasiums at Fairfax County parks and public schools. We also work with the Fairfax County Athletic Council to promote athletic engagement for residents of all ages and abilities throughout the county.

COVID-19 Guidelines and Resources

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated health guidance on February 25, 2022. The guidance includes new metrics for determining COVID-19 community levels as well as what health and safety measures should be considered for each community level. Based on this new guidance, Fairfax County’s current COVID-19 community level is low.

CDC Community Levels: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.html

Masking

Universal masking is not recommended during low community levels. Beginning March 1, masks will now be optional for FCPS students, staff, visitors, and volunteers. Individuals who are COVID cases or are known close contacts should mask during their isolation and quarantine periods. Additional information on isolation and quarantine periods can be found at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/health/novel-coronavirus/isolate-quarantine.

Contact Tracing

The Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) is no longer recommending the reporting and investigation of single, sporadic cases of COVID-19 on athletic teams. Potential outbreaks (3 or more cases within 14 days) of COVID-19 on teams are still required to be reported to FCHD, outbreaks can be reported here: https://redcap.link/outbreak.notification. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your permit to use fields in Fairfax County.
