Gov. Northam Forcing Non Essential Businesses In Virginia To Close
Written by Karolyn Hairston on March 26, 2020
To limit the spread of coronavirus, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has ordered that non-essential recreation businesses close at midnight Tuesday. This new order will be in place for the next 30 days and applies to the entire Commonwealth of Virginia.
At midnight all non-essential recreation and entertainment centers like theatres, museums, gyms, barbershops, and bowling alleys must close. Essential businesses like pharmacies, grocery stores, and banks can stay open, but they must follow social distancing guidelines and increase sanitation.
Restaurants and bars can remain open but only for takeout and delivery. They must also limit the number of people inside to 10 or less — that number does not include staff members.
