Viewing Meetings

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Board is conducting electronic meetings under the Continuity of Government Ordinance (PDF) adopted by the Board on October 14, 2020. While the meetings are electronic, the Board Room in the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison Street, S.E. in Leesburg, typically is open for the meetings. However, as part of the county’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the room capacity of the Board Room is currently limited. Members of the public are encouraged to view the Board of Supervisors’ meetings on television on Comcast Government Channel 23, Open Band Channel 40, and Verizon FiOS Channel 40, and at loudoun.gov/meetings.
