Reston Association has canceled all committee and board meetings through the end of next month.
The move was prompted by efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. The association is also canceling all activities, programs, and events until further notice.
Here’s more from RA:
The association has installed signs at tot lots throughout Reston that offer the following tips related to preventing the spread of COVID-19:
– Wash your hands before and after using playground equipment.
– Stay at least six feet away from other children and adults.
– Do not gather in groups of 10 people or more.
– Please do not use this recreational facility if sick.
– Sneeze or cough into a tissue or inside your elbow.
We have also closed public restrooms at Lake Newport, Glade and Autumnwood recreation facilities.
RA encourages all its members to stay safe and abide by the guidelines set by Fairfax County, state and federal agencies.
Although the association’s member service department is closed, staff will be on-call on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Walker Nature Center and Central Services Facility is also closed to the public.
Phone call hours will be extended until 8 p.m.. on Monday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 31 to allow members to pay assessment fees by phone or via WebTrac. Fees are due by March 31.
It is unclear how the closures will impact RA’s ongoing election for its Board of Directors.
