Fairfax County, Virginia, April 8, 2020 — How the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is affecting businesses throughout Fairfax County is the focus of a survey being taken by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA).

The short survey asks business owners or executives to describe the impact of the public health emergency on their staffing and revenue and their outlook for future staffing and revenue. The survey also asks what resources the owners or executives have found useful and what additional resources they would find useful.
