Poll: Should Virginia Start Reopening the Economy Next Week?

Gov. Ralph Northam announced yesterday that he expects to start reopening businesses in Virginia by next Friday, May 15.

Northam said the eased restrictions would still include changes, like restaurants reopening for dine-in but seating patrons further apart and limiting occupancy.

Northam is the first regional leader to announce a specific date for reopening. Also on Monday, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan pushed back on calls to lift the stay at home order.

In Alexandria, the new infected count is still increasing, though a lack of data from the Alexandria Health Department and the Virginia Department of Health on patients who have recovered has made it difficult to get a clear picture where the city currently stands with cases.
