Help end the pandemic by wearing a mask over both your nose and mouth, washing your hands frequently, and getting vaccinated. Approximately 1 in 20 Alexandrians who have tested positive for COVID-19 have required hospitalization, so without these critical steps, additional lives may be at risk.

Alexandria Police Department Reopens Headquarters For Public Services

Starting today, the main lobby of the Alexandria Police Department Headquarters (3600 Wheeler Ave.) is now accessible for public fingerprinting and in-person records assistance. Public fingerprinting is now available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Access to records is provided through the Information Services window, which is now open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday, the window is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Record requests are also accepted by mail. At this time, everyone entering the building must wear a mask and check in with security staff at the front desk upon entry.

Summer Camp Updates

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their guidance for operating youth and summer camps. The guidance outlines strategies that camp programs can use to maintain healthy environments and operations, lower the risk of COVID-19 spread in their programs, prepare for when someone is sick with COVID-19, and support coping and resilience. Families can refer to this guidance to help guide discussion with their camp providers, to ensure everyone is following safety and health protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities offers a variety of summer camp options for ages 3 to 16. To ensure the safety of participants and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, each program will follow all federal, state, and local guidelines. Visit alexandriava.gov/Recreation to register for summer activities or for more information.
