With warmer weather in the forecast, Loudoun County officials are reminding residents that public school campuses and facilities, and features at Loudoun County parks, such as playgrounds, athletic fields and courts, remain closed.  

While Loudoun County parks have remained open for trail and leisure use, playgrounds, athletic courts and fields at both county-operated parks and Loudoun County Public Schools are closed to help residents maintain social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to limit the spread of germs, including those that cause COVID-19. 

Signs pertaining to the closures have been posted on Loudoun County Public School campuses and at Loudoun County parks. Residents and businesses are subject to restrictions in compliance with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order 53, which is in effect until at least April 23, 2020. More information on the local impacts of the governor’s executive order was published in the county’s March 23 news release

If Loudoun residents observe a potential violation of the order, they are encouraged to call the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) non-emergency number at 703-777-1021. 

Violations of the governor’s order (paragraphs 1, 3, 4, and 6) are a misdemeanor, which carry a punishment of up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500. 

LCSO, with authorization from the respective Homeowners Association (HOA), may enforce “No Trespassing” on HOA-owned property, including playgrounds, basketball courts or other athletic facilities where signs are posted that these areas are closed.

Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.
