Emergency Restrictions

Thank you for taking the time to consider the public comments. Please base your decisions on science. The restrictions that have been in place in Virginia have been instrumental in slowing the spread of COVID. It is clear that other states, without safety measures in place, are seeing increases in infection rates. We do not want Virginia to join those states with upward trajectories of infection. Wearing masks and social distancing are working, please continue to mandate these measures. These are simple and effective means to keep our hospitalizations lower and not overwhelm our healthcare systems. Until there are proven, effective therapies and/or vaccine, we must stay the course!
