Governor Northam of Virginia was sharing a COVID-19 Update today.
7 hrs ·
So far, Virginia has avoided the same spike in #COVID19 cases that other states are experiencing, but we are starting to see a concerning increase, particularly in Hampton Roads.
We all have to stay vigilant—we have come too far to let our guard down now.
We are taking a cautious approach to reopening so we can closely monitor what's happening.
We will continue watching the data over the coming days to make sure public health guidelines are being followed—and I won't hesitate to impose restrictions if needed.
If we ALL do our part and take this virus seriously, we can stop the spread.
1️⃣ Avoid large crowds.
2️⃣ Wash your hands often.
3️⃣ Wear face coverings in indoor public spaces,
4️⃣ If you see a business flouting the rules, let your local health department know.
