Va. Governor Issues New COVID-19 Restrictions

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has issued a new set of coronavirus-related restrictions that include limiting the number of people attending public gatherings to 25, as well as the 10 p.m. closing of public bars.

Northam, who issued the mandates Friday, said the latest round of restrictions replaces the current cap of 250 individuals for indoor and outdoor events.

“COVID-19 is surging across the country, and while cases are not rising in Virginia as rapidly as in some other states, I do not intend to wait until they are,” Northam said in a statement. “Everyone is tired of this pandemic and restrictions on our lives. I’m tired, and I know you are tired, too. But as we saw earlier this year, these mitigation measures work.”

Other new restrictions include an expanded mask mandate where everyone older than 5 must wear a mask inside public buildings.
