As the Coronavirus continues to spread, it's no secret most businesses are closed and during his press conference today, Governor Northam announced all non-essential businesses will remain closed until May 8, 2020.
Originally, businesses were looking at April 24, 2020, but with more confirmed cases and as the death toll here in VA continues to increase, continuing to avoid human contact as much as possible is how we can slow down the spread of COVID-19.
Highlights from today's press conference:
- Gatherings of 10 or more people will remained banned
- The Stay-At-Home order deadline of June 10th still stands and the Governor does not plan to extend that at this time
- Continue to wear and expect to continue to wear face masks for the time being.
- Virginia's tax deadline has been extended to June 1, 2020
I have to admit, I miss Planet Fitness and as much as I want to be in there getting summer ready, that many people + sweat and heavy breathing = a Coronavirus party that I do not want to be at. So, keep social distancing and quarantining. The longer we stay inside, the quicker we can go back outside.
