State of Emergency

Fairfax County declares a state of emergency for practical and administrative purposes. A local state of emergency should not alarm residents to evacuate or take other actions than what’s already been shared.

  • All roads designated with signs as a “snow emergency route” are enforced – it is unlawful to park any vehicle on an emergency route or to impede traffic.
  • A local state of emergency also allows the county to apply for federal/state reimbursements if needed.
  • Allows greater coordination with other levels of government and partners.

    Why is it so difficult to find out whether county employees are required to come to work, have liberal leave, or if the County is closed? Even if the work schedule is normal, just say so!
