Fairfax County Government will close at 1 p.m.

County employees are encouraged to keep the weather conditions in mind and remember that unscheduled leave has already been granted. Employees may leave at any time and use their personal leave prior to 1 p.m. (official county closing time) if they so desire.

We encourage all residents to drive safely and get where you need to be before the weather gets bad.

    Will the Fairfax County Joseph Willard Health Center/Travel Clinic be open for scheduled appointments this afternoon? The phone recording doesn’t give any details, just that they’re unable to answer the phone.

    FCPS SCHOOLS NEED TO BE CLOSE DOWN ON WED, JAN 22. WHY THE COUNTY IS RISKING OUR KIDS TO MAKE THEM STAND IN COLD WEATHER FOR BUSES EARLY IN THE MORNING ON WED. THE WEATHER FORECAST MENTIONED BLOWING SNOW AND MUCH COLDER, EXTREME COLD CAN BE DANGEROUS IN THE MORNING. OUR CHILDREN WILL BE EXPOSED TO HYPOTHERMIA, IF THEY OPEN FCPS ON WED, JAN 22. THE FIRST PRIORITY OF COUNTY SHOULD BE OUR CHILDRENS SAFETY & WELLNESS.

    Yeah County dudes, don’t risk school children’s lives. It is your duty to safeguard them. Tonight the temperature level is freezing, not safe to expose them with Hypothermia / Frostbites.

    Someone please explain to me the value of the highly paid county executives who make these decisions. In fact, I think there should be a county-wide review of every single County employee who makes six figures, with the goal of trimming at least 20%. If you can’t prove your value, gone.

    Question for ED LONG:

    “Your safety and the safety of our community are always my primary concerns, so I pay particular attention to actual weather conditions and forecasts.But our community is best served when our facilities are open, our programs are held and our services are provided.”

    Question: Shouldn’t the county also consider the safety of the COMMUNITY? Since we are public/community focused? Many agencies within the county should follow the schools policy about closing. If agencies such as the health department, family services etc. stay open, it is INVITING the public to come for services just by being open. These agencies are NOT emergency facilities and can go a day without providing services if that means keeping the community SAFE by not being out during inclement weather!
