The weekend is almost here, and with it, FFXnow’s launch week comes to a close. Before parents start fretting over whether their kids go to school without masks or you head to bed for some much-needed sleep, let’s revisit the past week of news in Fairfax County.

Here are the five most-read stories on FFXnow this week:

  1. Presidents Day 2022: Here’s what’s open, closed for the holiday
  2. Another big development is coming near the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station
  3. Pedestrian injured in Reston vehicle crash dies
  4. Fairfax County’s Covid transmission level drops to ‘substantial’
  5. Thefts of car parts are on the rise in Reston, police say

Ideas for potential stories can be sent to or submitted as an anonymous tip. Photos of scenes from around the county are welcome too, with credit always given to the photographer.
