Case Update
Loudoun County Update
  • Governor Northam announced that he will extend key provisions of Executive Order 53, which places restrictions on businesses and gatherings of more than 10 people, at least through next Thursday, May 14, at midnight. 
    • Northam outlined a three-phase plan to ease restrictions on businesses and gatherings, when health data supports doing so. Each phase would last two to four weeks, depending on health metrics.
    • Phase One of easing restrictions would continue social distancing, teleworking, recommendations that people wear face coverings in public, and the ban on social gatherings of more than 10 people. It would ease some limits on business and faith communities, and would transition the stay at home directive to a "safer at home" guideline, especially for those in vulnerable populations.
    • The Northam administration will continue to monitor health data to ensure that trends of positive cases are going downward, that hospital capacity remains steady, that testing is increased, and that hospitals and medical facilities have necessary supplies of PPE.
