Governor Announces Most of Virginia to Enter Phase Two of COVID-19 Re-opening

June 5, 2020

Governor Northam announced on June 2 that, except for Northern Virginia and the City of Richmond, all localities will begin Phase Two of the Forward Virginia Blueprint for reopening in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Phase Two will provide greater flexibility for restaurants, gyms and outdoor recreation. Additionally, gatherings of up to 50 people will be allowed (currently a maximum of 10 under Phase One guidelines). Because Northern Virginia and Richmond have only been in Phase One for a week, the Governor said they will need more data to analyze before moving these areas into Phase Two. Phase Two guidelines for all business sectors can accessed at this website link.
