Fairfax County is conducting reviews of the COVID-19 pandemic response from January 2020 through December 2021. As part of this process, the county is seeking feedback from community members that interacted with county government staff, services, and resources during the pandemic. Surveys are only seeking feedback about Fairfax County Government, not the state or federal governments or those of independent cities or towns.
Two surveys are now available for you to help assess the county’s response to the pandemic across the entire government (not just health) and for specific business-related interactions.
The surveys will be open until July 5.
They can be translated into multiple languages by selecting the “translate” button on each survey.
Paper surveys also will be available at regional Fairfax County Public Library branches.
