Effective Thursday, March 3, 2022, Arlington County will no longer require masks for the public and most employees while inside County government facilities. This decision follows new guidance from the CDC issued on Feb. 25, 2022.

Currently, Arlington County is “Low,” meaning individuals may choose to wear a mask based on personal preference and level of risk of developing severe illness. For the public and most employees, masks will no longer be required inside County facilities, so long as Arlington is in the “Low” level.
People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
This change in the County’s mask policy is consistent with the recent guidance issued by CDC and Virginia Department of Health, as well as Arlington Public Schools. The CDC recommends everyone 5 years and older be up to date, meaning a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible. To find a vaccine location near you, visit vaccines.govwalk-in to one of the County’s clinics, or call our COVID-19 hotline at 703-228-7999.

$35 non-refundable registration fee is included in enrollment/camp. Each summer camp is subject to enrollment minimum of 5 students. Extended Day is subject to an enrollment minimum of 3 students. Full refunds are issued if a camp is cancelled. (Camps may be exchanged up to 30 days prior to the start date.

In the event of illness we cannot offer a refund and we provide no make-up policy.

    (minus registration fee and transaction fee)
