COVID-19 Update 7/14:

While there is not currently reason for panic here in Virginia, I wanted to share on update on the uptick we have begun to see.

- Northern, Northwest, Southwest, and Central VA have remained steady or decreased, Eastern VA (the Tidewater region) has seen a concerning and sharp increase.
- Cases among 20-29 year olds have increased 250% since early June.
- Almost 2,000 households have received or been approved for rent relief.

Please continue to social distance, and wear masks. Please don't erase the sacrifices made so far by letting the virus stage a comeback here in Virginia.

Yesterday the bills we passed in the 2020 Legislative Session became law. I wanted to share some changes that I am particularly proud of, some of which I have been working on since I was first elected!

I'm already starting to think about next year's portfolio, so please let me know if you have any suggested changes to state code.

COVID-19 Update 6/25

Percent positivity continues to trend downward statewide but Loudoun has increased to 8.5% and hospitalizations are up here at home.

The Governor also announced that he is ending his Tues/Thurs briefings, so we will continue to keep you updated, but our schedule will be in flux as well.

It remains important to follow social distancing guidelines to avoid a relapse here in Virginia.

Friends in Loudoun-

The Greenway is trying to raise rates to nearly $8 by 2025, but there’s something we can do to stop the rate hike.

The SCC, which approves those rate hikes, is conducting the public hearing remotely. You can provide up to five minutes of comment by filling out a form on the commission’s website at scc.virginia.gov/pages/webcasting, sending an email to [email protected], or by calling 804-371-9141 during normal business hours. The deadline to provide the contact information to the SCC is 5 p.m. on Friday, June 26.

Reid: Post-COVID-19 economic recovery priorities

COVID-19 Update 6/22:

As we emerge from COVID-19 lockdowns around Virginia, there are painful budget cuts ahead. I have shared a few priorities to ensure families aren't hurt any more than they already have been:

- Freezing In State Tuition
- Funding Broadband Expansion
- Investing in Business Ready Sites
- Investing in the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP)

Let me know what your priorities are, and as always I'm happy to answer any questions.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Stay safe and healthy.

COVID-19 Update 6/4

COVID-19 Update 6/4: Testing continues to stay above 10K per day as we move towards Phase II, which starts throughout Virginia tomorrow.

While I have mostly been making videos to provide updates about COVID-19, I wanted to share some thoughts on the Governor's announcement of the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue in Richmond. I am almost certainly not the best messenger, but I think everyone has the obligation to use whatever platforms they have to speak for what is right, and what is just, and to be as empathetic as we can to one another.

As always, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

06/03/2020

COVID-19 Update 5/26: Two big announcements today.

1. The Governor announced today that he is requiring Virginians to wear masks in public with specific guidelines that I have attached as slides. This mandate begins Friday, May 29th. I want to make clear that this is not a criminal matter, and there will be no law enforcement involved in the process.

2. Northern Virginia is on pace to begin a Phase I reopening on Friday, May 29th. I'll share more information later this week.

Thank you for your patience and willingness to protect one another as our economy begins to reopen.

05/25/2020

This is the first Memorial Day since the death of my Dad, TEC5 Myron V. Reid. He served in the US Army from 17 FEB 1943 to 7 NOV 1945 and was awarded the European-African-Middle Eastern (EAME) Theater Ribbon with two Bronze battle stars. Because he passed during the legislative session, and since then we’ve all been trying to adjust to the COVID-19 impacts, I haven’t had much time to think about his passing until today.

He was 19 yrs. old, with a 9th grade education, and working as paper hanger in Buena Vista, VA when his Nation called on him to travel to far-off Europe and help defend our freedoms. He would occasionally share World War II stories about sleeping on the ground in a German forest, bathing in a freezing cold stream in France, and the relentless nighttime bombings that would throw him from his cot.

As we take time this Memorial Day to recognize, remember, and honor our military who have given the greatest sacrifice to our Nation, I’d like to give a special remembrance for all those WWII veterans, especially my Dad, who set an example of service that I have tried to emulate.

COVID-19 Update 5/22: Time is flying by, and testing is ramping up. I wanted to share some slides today on upcoming testing events, the testing metrics we are following, and some resources as most of the state moves through Phase I.

Here in Northern Virginia, we are still on pace to begin Phase I on May 29th. Early next week, we'll know definitively.

I hope everyone has a good Memorial Day Weekend, and please remember that the virus does not care if it is a holiday or not, so please do ensure you follow the social distancing guidelines we have all gotten so good at.

I hope you all aren't really going to go down this path, shipmate:
Hello, where can I find information on testing in NOVA? All testing, free, with or without insurance, by appointment only, no Doctors order needed, antibody testing. I’m seeing so many posts in local groups asking about testing. The answers are pretty vague such as “I think you can get it in DC or Arlington”, “I think you have to pay for it and pay a separate lab”, “you can only be tested with a doctors order”. It seems this information should be more accessible. Thanks
Del. Reid - can you please ask VDOT to mill and repave Shellhorn Rd by Home Depot in Ashburn? It’s an absolute pothole-ridden and cracked mess. Thank you.
"When we consider that women are treated as property it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." —Elizabeth Cady Stanton
So just curious you had thousands of law abiding gun owners outside the Capital today in Richmond most of them with the scary AR-15 and yet nothing happened except a peaceful protest of Anti 2A gun laws. So the real question now is who’s side are you on?
What are you going to do about the assault weapons ? Are you for impeaching our President ? Hmmmmmmmm!
I am beyond incensed that Minority Leader Eileen Filler-Corn is denying the very credible women accusing LG Justin Fairfax of sexual assault the opportunity to confront him in a hearing. This is inconceivable, especially in light of the electric events of last fall that were nationally characterized by #BelieveAllWomen and #MeToo. It’s humiliating and embarrassing to all Virginia citizens, especially women, that these women are getting more respect on national television than they are in the Virginia legislature. I hope, and expect, that you will stand up and address this unfortunate situation!
THANK YOU delegate Reid for supporting the end of Restraint & Seclusion!!!!!
Delegate Reid, I was just made aware of the vote regarding late term abortion up to 40 weeks in Virginia. I’d like to know what was your stance and how did you vote?
Please support this!
Happy birthday!
Thanks for the kind words at LCDC yesterday!
