RCC Coronavirus Updates

The impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is widening continuously. RCC is closed until further notice by order of Governor Ralph Northam and Fairfax County Government. RCC buildings, programs, and services – including classes, trips, drop-in activities, RCC Rides, rentals and facility access – are closed to the public until further notice. During this period, RCC will offer options for people to enjoy on our RCC YouTube channel that will feature greetings from artists who were scheduled to perform, as well as ways to stay fit and creative while at home from RCC instructors. RCC will vastly alter its summer programming to maximize the health and safety of patrons. This includes cancelation of summer camps, June and July outdoor concerts and events, and onsite programming. However, RCC will be providing innovative, online options to best serve the community.

Camps – All RCC Summer Camps are canceled. RCC had hoped to offer a revised camp schedule with enhanced social distancing and smaller sized groups. However, with the state of COVID-19 cases currently in Virginia, this will not be possible. Families who already paid for the original camp offerings have been given full refunds. RCC will be offering virtual options to keep you young patrons engaged with creative programming this summer. Watch for more information soon.

Onsite programming – RCC’s facilities remain closed to the public until further notice. If public health regulations allow, limited, registration-only fitness and aquatics programming may be offered in July and August. Several of the CenterStage’s popular PTAs performers will be filming special performances for viewing on RCC’s YouTube Channel.

Offsite programming – RCC’s slate of summer events and concerts at Reston Town Center, Lake Anne Plaza and Reston Station are postponed. If possible, performances in late July or early August with audience social distancing protocols in place may be presented. Meanwhile, visit RCC’s YouTube channel, where concerts by some of Reston’s best-loved summer performers will be posted each week in June and July.

Looking ahead, RCC will be planning for Fall 2020 with enhanced hygiene and social distancing in mind. Registration will move from August 1 (August 8 for Non-Reston) to September 1 (September 8 for Non-Reston) to give programmers and county health officials maximum time for planning and best practices.

RCC will be communicating its online summer opportunities through its website, social media channels and outreach emails. Follow RCC on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube or watch for more information coming via email.

Patrons will receive refunds for canceled offerings; we ask that patrons exercise patience as this process will take a significant amount of time. Patrons do not need to present a refund request form or email to RCCContact@fairfaxcounty.gov; RCC will process refunds in full in chronological order through the entirety of the spring cycle of programming. Patrons may receive calls from RCC staff to obtain credit card information. Refunds for online purchases will be made to the credit card used for payment. If no credit card information is available, checks from Fairfax County Government will be sent to the address of record; check processing takes 4-6 weeks. We appreciate your patience.
