Virginia residents receiving unemployment benefits once again will be required to look for jobs starting in early June, state officials said.

The announcement was made Tuesday by the Virginia Employment Commission, The Associated Press reported.

The work search requirement, which had been put on pause during the coronavirus pandemic, will be reinstated for the week ending June 5, AP reported.

Claimants, including those participating in the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, must search and report two job searches per week to continue to get benefits.
