On July 1, Virginia begins Phase 3 of its "Forward Virginia" Plan. The plan includes best practices for physical distancing, enhanced cleaning best practices for home and businesses, and guidelines for social gatherings.
Phase 3 also includes mandatory requirements for restaurants and beverage services, farmers markets, retail stores, fitness and exercise facilities, swimming pools, recreational sports, campgrounds and overnight camps, entertainment venues and theatres, religious services, and personal care/grooming services.
For more information, see the Forward Virginia Phase 3 Guidelines.
