Virginia to Begin Phase 3 of Reopening on July 1

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Tuesday that the state will adhere to restrictive operational mode on July 1.

Virginia’s move into Phase 3 of its gradual reopening from COVID-19 will allow for social gatherings of up to 250 people and restaurants and retail businesses to operate at full capacity.

“It still means you’re safer at home, especially if you’re vulnerable. We’re still strongly encouraging teleworking” as well as social distancing and face masks, Northam said.

The governor added that the rate of positive cases among those tested is at 6.4% and trending downward.

Hair salons and barbershops as well as child care centers will also be allowed to open completely.

The state’s guidelines, which recommend continued social distancing of 6 feet, also require the use of face coverings.
