Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 2 pm, Governor Ralph Northam conducts press briefings viewable live on Facebook or at the Virginia Public Media (VPM) website. Briefings typically last 30 minutes and include the latest information on the Commonwealth’s efforts to track and respond to the pandemic.
VACo will continue to watch each briefing and update our members with timely information including links to the following resources and opportunities cited by the Governor and his cabinet:
- The Virginia Medical Reserve Corps seeks qualified individuals to fill much needed gaps in healthcare. Interested individuals should go to www.vamrc.org;
- For issues, questions, and resources relating to childcare during the crisis, consult this webpage on the Virginia Department of Social Services (DSS) website;
- Companies willing to donate personal protective equipment (PPEs), such as masks, from their own inventory, should go to www.virginia.gov/covid19supplies; and
- Food banks can now distribute beyond the minimum eligibility requirements for those in need. Visit www.VAFoodbanks.org for more information.
