NCS Inclement Weather Policy

On occasion, inclement weather may affect the operation of Fairfax County's Neighborhood and Community Center facilities, programs and services. Decisions regarding closures or cancellation are made with the utmost regard for the safety of our participants and staff. In the event of inclement weather, the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) posts all facility closures and delays online and on Facebook

All NCS Facilities follow the status of Fairfax County Government for closures. If Fairfax County Government is closed for the entire day, all NCS programs and services are canceled.  Programming, transportation, meals and other services may be impacted by Fairfax County Public Schools Status. Status updates are available by calling the Neighborhood and Community Services Main Office at 703-324-4600, TTY 711, or by using the Facility Locator to contact a facility directly.  

Monitoring the status of Fairfax County Government and Fairfax County Public Schools can provide general guidance as to the operational status of our facilities.
