Fairfax County Urges Residents to Stay Home

Fairfax County strongly urges residents to follow the stay-at-home order issued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam today.

This order is critical to help slow the spread of the coronavirus as cases continue to climb across the state with 225 confirmed cases in the Fairfax County Health District. Social distancing is the most effective method to limit the disease’s transmission.

The governor’s action, which remains in effect until June 10, means that residents should stay in homes with only a few exceptions for essential activities, including:

Getting groceries or medicines.

Caring for a sick family member or friend.

Getting medical care for yourself.

Going outside for exercise for yourself or pets (although not in groups larger than 10 people).

Getting essential social or government services.

Traveling to and from work or place of worship.

Do not go out unless you need to go out.

“To date, this has been a suggestion to Virginians,” said Northam. “Today it’s an order.”
