The federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, that has been in place since early 2020, ends May 11, 2023.

Fairfax Public Access will eliminate the last of its remaining COVID-19 precautionary measures effective on the May 11 health emergency end date.

As such, the number of individuals allowed in FPA building areas, including studio and conference room areas, reverts to the pre-COVID maximum limits. These limits are generally the maximum allowed by the Fire Department; however, as previously required, producers expecting more than 15 persons for their studio bookings (including talent, crew, and guests) must submit a Studio Waiver Request. 

This waiver can be located at the link below:

All persons, including FPA members and staff, should follow the following guidelines from the Fairfax County Health Department:

The end of the public health emergency does not mean that COVID-19 is over. COVID-19 is still making people sick in our community. We continue to encourage you to take steps to protect yourself, your family, and those around you.
