During the Governor’s press conference held today, May 26th, he announced that he has issued a statewide mandate requiring masks or similar face coverings that will go into effect this Friday, May 29th.

This means that businesses will be mandated to require all employees and customers to wear face coverings while inside, except while eating and drinking. The mandate will be enforced by the Virginia Department of Health, however, we do not know what that looks like at this time. We are waiting for more details on exactly how this will be enforced and will share those details once we receive them.
