Board of Supervisors May Give Gyms, Restaurants More Room Outside

Later today (Thursday), the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will consider allowing easier expansion of outdoor dining and exercise activity.

Fairfax County announced the meeting yesterday following news that the county will start easing COVID-19 restrictions on businesses on Friday (May 29).

The meeting’s only agenda item is the emergency ordinance, which would temporarily allow “the expanded use of outdoor space for outdoor dining and for outdoor fitness and exercise activities, all under specified conditions and without the need for individualized determinations.”

The ordinance would kick in when the county starts the first phase on Friday of the governor’s reopening plan.

The meeting is set to start at 3 p.m.
