Governor Northam announced that Virginia will move into Phase One of the "Forward Virginia" plan on Friday, May 15, with the exception of certain localities in Northern Virginia.

The Northam administration has worked with officials from those localities on a plan to delay entering Phase One for an additional two weeks in Northern Virginia.

Northern Virginia as a region has roughly half of the positive COVID-19 cases in the Commonwealth. It also has higher rates of positive tests and more hospitalizations of patients with positive or pending COVID-19 tests.

On Tuesday, Governor Northam issued Executive Order Sixty-Two, allowing specific localities in Northern Virginia to delay entering Phase One until midnight on Thursday, May 28.

The full text of Executive Order 62 can be found here.

More information on Phase One requirements for Virginia as a whole can be found here.

Accurate, reliable information about COVID-19 can be found on the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) website.
