Spanberger Statement on Virginia Stay at Home Order

HENRICO, V.A. – U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today released the following statement after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam issued a Stay at Home order for all Virginia residents.

“Today’s announcement from the Governor is the right step forward in mitigating and preventing the spread of this deadly virus. The Commonwealth’s healthcare professionals are working around the clock to save the lives of our neighbors, and we need to do everything in our power to limit the number of COVID-19 cases coming through their doors and allow our doctors and nurses to effectively treat those who are suffering. In the days and weeks to come, I strongly encourage all Central Virginians to adhere to the latest guidance from the CDC, continue practicing social distancing measures, and keep our workers on the front lines in their thoughts. These are difficult times, but through our vigilance, we will make it through this crisis.”

According to the Office of the Governor, the executive order takes effect immediately and will remain in place until June 10, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by a further executive order.
