Virginia governor Ralph Northam announced a stay-at-home order for the state on Monday afternoon. Everyone in the Commonwealth must stay at home unless they need essentials or essential services, like food, essential work or medical care. All schools and universities of higher education will be closed, as will all campgrounds and public beaches, excluding the need for exercise. Anyone with the ability to work remotely from home is encouraged to do so. Non-essential businesses are encouraged to follow the 10-person rule, and if they do not, they will be required to close. If any groups of 10 or more people are found congregating, especially in public areas, they can be charged with a Class 1 Misdemeanor. The governor also asked anyone who has traveled out of the state, particularly in virus hotspots, to self-quarantine.
