Northern Virginia and the city of Richmond are not being grouped together with the rest of the commonwealth today as Virginia enters phase two of reopening in much of the state. The second phase allows restaurants to have indoor capacity at 50% and fitness centers to have indoor capacity at 30%. The lift of restrictions also allows for groups of up to 50 people (up from the original limit of 10) and recreational sports will be allowed with no sharing of equipment. Northern Virginia is expected to wait another two weeks until entering phase two, but Northern Virginia’s phase one still allows for haircuts, religious services, shopping at retail stores and eating outdoors at restaurants.
