Virginia to Ease COVID-19 Restrictions Next Month

Effective April 1, Virginia will relax COVID-19 restrictions to allow more people to attend graduations, weddings and outdoor events.

Gov. Ralph Northam announced the changes Tuesday based on a declining number of new COVID-19 cases and the number of people who have been vaccinated.

As of next month, social gatherings may have up to 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors, and capacity limits for other indoor and outdoor events such as sporting events and graduations will be increased to 500 people, depending on the venue. People will still be required to wear face masks and follow other protocols.

“With increased vaccination capacity and our health metrics continuing to trend the right direction, we can safely take these targeted steps to ease certain mitigation measures,” Northam said. “Virginians have come so far over the past year, and now is not the time to simply throw the doors open or let down our guard. While some capacity limits will be increased, we must all remember to stay vigilant and work together to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities.”
