URGENT UPDATE: Virginia Stay at Home Order and Further Info


On Monday afternoon, Governor Northam issued a statewide Stay at Home Order as part of the Commonwealth's ongoing aggressive response to COVID-19. This order will remain in place until June 10th, unless amended or rescinded by a further executive order.

The order directs all Virginians to stay home except in extremely limited circumstances. Individuals may leave their residence for allowable travel, including to seek medical attention, work, care for family or household members, obtain goods and services like groceries, prescriptions, and others as outlined in Executive Order Fifty-Three, and engage in outdoor activity with strict social distancing requirements.

Additionally, the Governor has directed that beaches and private campgrounds (short-term stays) be closed, in addition to the previous business directives that were ordered last week. He has also made a request for Major Presidential Disaster Declaration to receive more resources for our state's response.

I remain committed to working with the Governor and his team during these difficult times and believe that our state will come through this chapter in history stronger than ever.
