Spring and Easter Activities
The annual Easter Egg Hunt is cancelled, but the fun continues online! Go to the Recreation and Parks webpage for activities like crafts, virtual egg hunts, bingo and more!
Lock it or Lose It
Don't forget to lock the doors of your vehicles, home, garage, basement, shed, etc. -- and don't leave valuables in sight. Even spare change in a car console can be enough for a thief to try to gain entry -- make sure nothing is visible, and lock your doors.
Question of the Day
How many COVID-19 cases are in the City of Falls Church?
As of today, there are 488 cases in the Fairfax Health District -- a jump of 116 cases over the weekend -- which includes the City of Falls Church, City of Fairfax, Fairfax County, and towns in the county. In short, the City government does not know the exact number of cases, but we assume there are many.
There is "community spread" of COVID-19, which means we must protect ourselves by staying at least 6 feet from others not in our household, wearing a face covering when going out in public, and going into public only when absolutely necessary.
The Fairfax Health Department and Virginia Department of Health will notify the City if there are cases of community concern -- that is, if residence were at a certain place at a certain time, they should automatically self-quarantine themselves in their house.
There are no active cases of community concern at this time. Make sure you are subscribed to more than one notification tool from the City. In addition to this newsletter, you can subscribe to:
