Have your eyes gotten red while swimming? It’s not because of the chlorine. It’s because of chlorine mixed with p*e. Yuck!
💧 Keep pools and people healthy by keeping the p*e out!
💧Take breaks every hour and check diapers every 30–60 mins.
💧 Avoid swallowing water when swimming.

Why are community connections so important?
Because a quick stop for minutas can turn into a refreshing treat AND protection from COVID-19. After seeing a flier at a local stand, some of our Fairfax County neighbors found out about a nearby vaccine pop-up clinic and were able to conveniently get vaccinated.

Ticks are present throughout Fairfax County and are often found in wooded areas, brushy fields, along trails and around homes. If you were out and about today, make sure you do a tick check:
✅Bathe or shower as soon as possible when you get back inside.
✅Check your body with a mirror because ticks like to hide.
✅Examine gear and pets for hitchhikers and stowaways.
✅Wash clothing and dry with high heat.
