Virginia (Fairfax County)
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, in a unanimous vote, requested that County Executive Bryan J. Hill evaluate how to incorporate a vaccine requirement when employees fully return to work in the Fall. The requirement would include health and religious exemptions but would mandate unvaccinated employees who don’t meet those exemptions to wear masks and agree to weekly coronavirus testing. This from the Board action made Fairfax the first municipality in the DC Area to officially seek ways to respond more aggressively to a new surge in COVID-19 infections.
