The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) has announced the postponement of Independence Day celebrations. The action is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with recommendations and guidance from the Office of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"We regret that these popular events hosted by Claude Moore Park, Franklin Park, Lovettsville Community Center and Sterling Community Center cannot be held in July," stated Steve Torpy, Director of PRCS. "However, the safety of our citizens and staff is always our first priority. If Northern Virginia has entered Phase 3 of the Forward Virginia Blueprint by Labor Day weekend, our plan is to hold community celebrations with fireworks," reported Torpy.
Currently, PRCS centers are closed under the Commonwealth of Virginia Executive Order No. 62.
