To help contain the spread of COVID-19, remember:
Wash your hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.
Regularly disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Avoid close contact with others – stay six feet apart.
Avoid touching your face.
Cover all coughs and sneezes with tissue or the inside of your elbow.
STAY HOME – even if you are not considered high-risk, you can still pass the virus to others.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FEEL SICK
If you are experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, and have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, call your doctor or emergency room to seek medical attention. The CDC has prepared a fact sheet you can read HERE.
Forward Virginia: Re-Opening
Beginning June 5, Virginia will enter Phase 2 of our re-opening plan – click HERE to read the plan.
Restaurants can now open their doors for indoor seating at 50% capacity. Tables should be set up in a way that allows for social distancing and sanitizing and cleaning should be done between customers. Take out, delivery, and outdoor seating measurements are still in effect as well! Live music is allowed, but must keep the six-foot distance from staff and customers.
Fitness centers may reopen for indoor classes and work outs at 30% capacity. Equipment should be cleaned and sanitized between uses and social distancing will still apply.
Social Gatherings. The limit on social gatherings has been increased to 50 people in Phase 2 versus the 10 person limit in Phase 1.
Pools may open with certain restrictions in place.
Zoos, Museums & Aquariums. These types of venues are allowed to reopen as long as social distancing is followed and they create a guest flow that avoids congestion. Occupancy is not to exceed 50%.
We are still Safer At Home. While Phase 2 does relax some restrictions, it is imperative we all continue to follow guidelines and rules to keep everyone safe.
We understand that you are getting very frustrated and having a hard time with unemployment right now. We hope that passing along some of this information will help you out and help to get you the answers you are looking for.
If you have already filed a claim and it is still pending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help with your claim.
