Loudoun, Northern Virginia, to Enter Phase Two of ‘Reopening’ Plan
Posted on June 10, 2020 at 5:02 PM by Nancy McCormick
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced Tuesday that Northern Virginia, including Loudoun County, will enter Phase Two of the “Forward Virginia” reopening plan Friday, June 12, 2020. Phase Two is the next step in gradually easing public health restrictions that are designed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Governor Northam indicated Virginia’s health metrics overall are “looking positive,” citing the downward trend in the percent of positive tests and hospitalizations due to COVID-19 over 14 days, sufficient hospital capacity and personal protection equipment (PPE) and increasing testing capacity. The governor’s temporary stay-at-home order expired on June 4, 2020.
Phase Two of the plan:

10 to 50 people
; the restrictions do not apply to people performing functions of their employment.

, etc., to reopen in accordance with a number of guidelines, including keeping patrons at least ten feet apart and limiting the total number of attendees to 30% of the facility’s occupancy capacity.

“It is important to recognize that while the steps Loudoun residents have taken over the past two months to reduce the spread of infection have caused the health metrics to head in the right direction and allowed us to move to Phase Two of the reopening plan, the potential for exposure to COVID-19 remains present in our community,” said Loudoun County Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend. “So, I continue to recommend that older adults and people with underlying health conditions use extra caution in public, and ask that all of us remain vigilant in practicing infection control measures that include washing hands frequently, staying home when sick, maintaining six foot distances when possible and wearing face coverings in public, to help keep us headed in the right direction.”
While Northern Virginia will move into Phase Two, Governor Northam’s
Executive Order 63 (PDF)
, which requires the use of face coverings in most public indoor locations, remains in effect until amended or rescinded by further executive order.
