Stafford officials have decided to extend the existing closure of county buildings to the public through Feb. 5 due to the continuing rise in COVID-19 cases across the region.

The Board of Supervisors meetings on Jan. 19 and Feb. 2 will be held virtually with no public in attendance. Due to COVID-19, the Healthy Growth issue is on the agenda for potential deferment to a later date when levels will allow for full public participation.

All meetings will be streamed on Stafford’s website at, the Stafford government cable channel, and Facebook Live.
