Virginia’s Mask Mandate Update

Updated: Jun 9, 2021


Effective at 12:01 AM on Friday, May 28, Governor Northam lifted Virginia’s universal indoor mask mandate and all capacity restrictions. This means that all fully vaccinated Virginians “do not have to wear masks in most indoor settings, except on public transit, in health care facilities, and in congregate settings. Businesses retain the ability to require masks in their establishments. Employees who work in certain business sectors—including restaurants, retail, fitness, personal care, and entertainment—must continue to wear masks unless fully vaccinated, per CDC guidance. Those who are unvaccinated or not fully-vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear masks in all settings.” (Emphasis ours.)


While this is understandably great news, it doesn’t mean that the pandemic is over yet. Not all Virginians have been full vaccinated: some can’t; and, sadly, some won’t. Being fully vaccinated isn’t 100% protection from COVID-19, either—it’s close, but not perfect. To that end, the Board strongly encourages all Members and Friends who wish to attend in-person activities to get vaccinated now, if you aren’t; and to be mindful and respectful of the health status and risk tolerance of others.
