Virginia Beach to Reopen Memorial Day Weekend

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Monday that Virginia Beach will reopen for recreational use Friday ahead of Memorial Day weekend, but with some coronavirus-related restrictions still in place.

Northam said during the briefing that “as defined by the city’s ordinance,” the state is reopening beaches to allow activities such as sunbathing, surfing, swimming and fishing.

Other activities such as group sports, fishing on sand in resort areas, tents and umbrella groupings will be prohibited, along with speakers and alcohol.

Parking lots and garages will be limited to 50 percent capacity.

Northam said if people ignore the restrictions as well as social distancing mandates, he will not hesitate to reinstate Phase I restrictions — or, if necessary, close the beach.
