Governor of Virginia

The Governor announced new measures this afternoon to combat rising COVID-19 infections. While some of you may be disappointed to hear this news, please remember to keep the comments civil, thanks!

We are seeing #COVID19 surge around the country—cases are rising much faster in other states than in Virginia, but we cannot afford to wait to take action.

So today we are taking important steps to prevent this health crisis from getting worse. New mitigation measures will go into effect at midnight on Sunday, November 15 and include:

1️⃣ 25-person limit on indoor and outdoor gatherings, down from 250
2️⃣ expanded mask requirement, including children aged 5+
3️⃣ 10 p.m. on-site alcohol curfew
4️⃣ increased enforcement

I know everyone is tired of this pandemic—I am tired too. But as we saw earlier this year, these measures work. And I am confident that we can come together as one Commonwealth to get this virus under control and save lives.

These restoration efforts are extremely important because they are an integral part of helping us to achieve the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement goals. This project also impacts not only the health of the Chesapeake Bay but will improve the quality of local water ways and the quality of life for our city and its citizens.'

Thanks to our 21st Century Partnerships with Virginia Beach City Government and VBSchools we kicked off the wetlands restoration of the Lynnhaven River Basin Ecosystem Restoration Project this afternoon near the #Thalia boat ramp in Virginia Beach. The event showcased a two-decade-long commitment founded on trust, cooperation & collaboration to increase health of the Lynnhaven River while promoting environmental education and stewardship.

Attention Hilltop Area: Starting at 10 p.m. Monday night, 11/2, there will be a waterline shutdown in the 1500 and 1600 blocks of Laskin Rd. Hilltop East. There is a 12” jumper that will still provide water during this time, but everything from east of First Colonial Rd. to the Oceanfront will have potential water fluctuations depending on water usage. This work will also result in the closure of one eastbound and one westbound lane of Laskin Rd. on either side of the median between the Hilltop North entrance and First Colonial. Work is expected to be complete by 6 a.m. the following morning, 11/3.

⚠️Traffic Alert Monday Night: Laskin Road⚠️
Starting at 10PM Monday night, 11/2, utility work will result in the closure of one eastbound and one westbound lane of Laskin Road on either side of the median between the Hilltop North entrance and First Colonial Road. This work is expected to be completed by 6AM the following morning, 11/3.

Is it possible to get a head’s up when I disn River is going to be closed between Lynnhaven and S. Independence? Second time in a week motorists have to pull uturns and detour at an unexpected closure. Traffic is a bit of a mess. Signage near the Glenwood subdivision would help to alleviate the aforementioned uturns and detour traffic.
Could you please explain to me why my car was towed at 7:46 pm on 8th st in front of the shack when your site specifically says it's free 2 hour parking? I parked at 6:25 to eat at mahis. Also there's no info to know who towed my car!!!
Would be nice if you gave warning of street sweeping operations so vehicles could be moved off the street in order to allow the sweeper to get all of the gutters. 🤔
How can I request the city to evaluate how the current cross walk signals work? When using the crosswalks, drivers almost NEVER look for individuals crossing since they get a green light at the same time the crosswalk signals the pedestrian to cross. We need a better solution to allow pedestrians to cross busy intersections and bike paths safely.
I'm not trying to spam you, I'm just trying to SAVE OUR OFFICER'S LIVES, especially with how crazy things are going in this world. Please look into our Free live stream ground breaking Violence prediction training starting at 4pm EST today, this will save lives. We are out of Virginia Beach and we definitely want our officers to get this training especially for free. Help us save our officer's lives! #police4a #nonprofit
When checking to see if my ballot processed for 2020 election, it shows "Ballot Information Was not Found." Voted early in person at courthouse on 10/8/2020, and placed in machine. Does that mean my ballot wasn't counted?
Unacceptable. The largest city in Virginia needs more locations.
Renovations? Why are you avoiding May 31st Memorial? Will it implicate the city? Hell yes!
Renovations???? What about May31st memorial? Why do you insist on forgetting will it implicate the city? YES IT WILL!
Can you tell me how long Bells Road will be closed? I saw a sign this afternoon saying it will be closed starting 10/31.
I have called all over Va. beach trying to get a resolution to my extremely high water bill recently received. I have driven down to municipal center as well and been given the run around by everyone down there. This is awful service for the extremely high taxes we people in Virginia Beach pay. I had a leak, had it repaired and was trying to get a water bill adjustment but no one, no one is willing to help or listen or steer me in the right direction. Also, I took a copy of dead husband death certificate into city over 3 years ago and HRSD bill is still coming in his name. Dead people can't pay bills and no one else is responsible for them. Please hire staff that can get jobs done. Thank you. I have written letters to town municipal center but am expecting no help or answers from them as well. What kind of a city are you people running these days? No one making a pay check down there seems to work.
Wait time for voting is a LOT longer than 30 minutes. 4th attempt. OPEN UP SATELLITE LOCATIONS!
