Car Seat Installation program SUSPENDED.

Please understand that our first-responders are at a great risk to being exposed to potential COVID-19 through their regular daily operations. With young children and expectant parents being at risk populations, we wish to reduce the unknowing exposure to COVID-19 by temporarily suspending the inspection program. This suspension is effective immediately, and until further notice. Updates will be made here on our Facebook page, and the City of Manassas Park’s Webpage. City of Manassas Park residents may still call the station and ask to speak with a Certified Car Seat Technician during this time if they have any questions.

City Announcement: Message from the City Manager pertaining to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

City Announcement: Message from the City Manager pertaining to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has been declared a Global Pandemic by the World Health Organization as of March 11th, 2020. Governor Ralph Northam has declared a State of Emergency today for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Around Northern Virginia, schools are beginning to close and governments are weighing policy options. We will be providing our residents full details on our City Government response on this issue tomorrow as part of the Governing Body Agenda.

In the meantime, I wanted to inform residents that until further notice, our Community Center will close when our Schools close to coordinate mitigation efforts (this Monday March 16th, we will be closed for a deep cleaning). City Events have been cancelled or suspended until further notice. This will result in the suspension of the basketball tournament this weekend (March 14th) at our Community Center and is consistent with regional and national efforts as related to sporting events.

City residents are encouraged to check official sources of information with regard to this virus including the CDC website at or VDH website at for the latest information on COVID-19. These resources include information about the virus and the factors that put an individual at risk, such as travel to impacted areas of the world. Information on best practices related to personal hygiene and preventive measures in the workplace is also provided. Additionally, members of the public with questions about COVID-19 may contact VDH at 703-ASK-VDH3.
