Creating Community during COVID-19
As PRCS moves through Virginia’s reopening phases and offers programs in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Virginia Department of Health and Loudoun County Health Department, we continue to be here for you digitally as all of us learn to navigate this new environment.
Our content includes instructional videos (some made prior to social distancing, etc), virtual tours, activities to do at home, social media and other resources to help us create community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We invite you to visit this page often for new content, to explore the PRCS story of creating community through people, parks and programs and to check out our video spotlight.
