Phased Reopening & Impact on FCPS Operations
Governor Ralph Northam’s guidelines for reopening Virginia is a three-phase plan. On July 1, 2020, the Governor moved Northern Virginia to Phase Three. More information on Phase 3 is available.
For FCPS Employees, Phase 3 means:
In Phase Three, our worksites will be open for employees to work. Telework remains an option for employees with health or other needs that prevent them from working onsite.
All employees will be asked to wear a face covering or mask in FCPS buildings in open areas AND practice social distancing. Employees will also need to complete a daily health screening questionnaire. More details on personal protective equipment (PPE) are available in the FCPS Employee Guide for Return to Work.
Visitors to FCPS will be required to make an appointment. Visitors to FCPS facilities must also wear a face covering or mask. All buildings will be supplied with disposable masks for visitors who do not have one. Protocols to follow to schedule and receive visitors are available in the FCPS Employee Guide for Return to Work.
