- The chief elected officials of the five largest localities in Northern Virginia sent a letter to Governor Northam, supporting his "Forward Virginia" reopening plan in general but urging him to implement it for the region only once regional threshold metrics have been met. Although the metrics appear likely to be met statewide by May 15, this does not appear to be the case for Northern Virginia. The 2.5 million residents of the city of Alexandria and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William represent nearly a third of the population of Virginia and half of the Commonwealth's COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths. Read the full release for details.
- Helping You Cope with Cabin Fever: It's no surprise that many of us are experiencing cabin fever as Loudoun County residents continue to practice social distancing and comply with the governor's stay-at-home order.

To help everyone cope, the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) has introduced an array of online resources to help us get through the COVID-19 pandemic.
