Virginia Poised to Invalidate Businesses Ignoring Masks, Social Distancing Rules

Concerned with rising cases of coronavirus cases — particularly in the Hampton Roads area — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced the state will step up its mandate on masks and social distancing requirements in public establishments.

To ensure compliance, health and liquor inspectors and other officials will conduct unannounced visits to businesses “as needed” to see that they are adhering to the rules, Northam said Tuesday during a Richmond press conference.

“If you own a restaurant or business and you’re not following the regulations, your license will be on the line, and we will not hesitate to take action if needed,” the Democratic governor said.
