Loudoun County and northern Virginia may enter Phase 1 of reopening its economy Friday. More details and information on the reopening is expected in the days ahead.
In the first phase, which most of Virginia entered last week, nonessential retail businesses and places of worship can operate at 50 percent of the building’s occupancy rate -- up from 10 people under the current rules. Restaurants and bars will only be allowed to serve customers in outdoor spaces, and employees at retail businesses and restaurants will have to wear masks.
Beauty parlors and barber shops will be by appointment only and will only be able to operate if both employees and customers wear masks.
Statewide, Virginia has 36,244 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 1,171 deaths and 4,214 hospitalizations.
The Virginia unemployment rate hit double digits in April amid the pandemic, the Associated Press reports.
The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors this week unanimously approved $5.7 million in additional grant funding for the COVID-19 Business Interruption Fund to support small businesses adversely impacted by the pandemic.
The funds were allocated from the $36.1 million in federal funding made available to the county from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
