- Governor Lifts Mask Mandate to Align with New CDC Guidance: Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is lifting the state's universal indoor mask mandate to align with the new guidance issued Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Key things to know about the amendments to Executive Order 72:
- Effective at midnight tonight (5/14/21), masks will no longer be required by executive order for fully vaccinated individuals in most indoor settings. Exceptions will include public transit, health care facilities and congregate settings. Anyone who is not yet vaccinated is strongly encouraged to wear masks in all settings.
- Employees who work in certain business sectors, such as restaurants, retail, fitness, personal care and entertainment, must continue to wear masks unless fully vaccinated, consistent with CDC guidelines.
- Masks will continue to be required in K-12 school settings, given low rates of vaccination among children.
- Businesses will retain the ability to require masks in their establishments if they choose, and individuals will continue to be permitted to wear masks if they choose.
- Social distancing and capacity restrictions will be lifted on May 28, instead of June 15 as previously announced.
- Virginia's state of emergency will remain in effect at least through June 30.
