Importance of the Issue

On June 2, 2020, Executive Order 65 and Order of Public Health Emergency Six implemented Phase Two, continuing to ease business, gathering, and traveling restrictions originally imposed by Executive Order 53 and Executive Order 55 issued in March of 2020. During the weeks following, the public health metrics have continued to show positive trends. Our testing is increasing, our supply of personal protective equipment is steady, our hospital bed capacity remains steady, our hospitalizations statewide have a downward trend, and the percentage of positive tests continue to trend downward. Virginia continues to make significant progress.

As outlined below, we will move forward into Phase Three. In doing so, we must remember that the virus is still in our communities. We must remain cautious—continue teleworking whenever possible, wash our hands frequently, do not touch our faces, and wear face coverings. Through these efforts, we will continue to protect ourselves, our families, and our fellow Virginians as we respond to this emergency.
