Governor Northam Offers Clarity Regarding Enforcement of Executive Order 63

During the Governor’s press conference today, he addressed the many concerns swirling around enforcement of his face covering mandate in all public places scheduled to take effect beginning tomorrow, May 29th.

The Governor and his general counselor stated that businesses and their employees are not to be the enforcers or put themselves in a harmful position. The Governor encouraged businesses to clearly post his mandate at the entrance for customers and that they do mandate employees to wear masks.

The guidelines and signage for businesses to print and post at the entrance to their business will be added to the Forward Virginia website and will be available in both English and Spanish.
