Alexandria, like the rest of Northern Virginia, is scheduled to move into Phase 2 of reopening this Friday. For cooped up Alexandrians, that means local gyms and some entertainment venues could start to reopen.
According to the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, this will mean a loosening of restrictions on local businesses, including:
- Restaurant and beverage establishments may offer indoor dining at 50 percent occupancy
- Fitness centers may open indoor areas at 30 percent occupancy,
- Certain recreation and entertainment venues without shared equipment may open with restrictions
- The current guidelines for non-essential retail and personal grooming services will largely remain the same in Phase Two
Restaurants are also still allowed to file for temporary outdoor dining permits, which were allowed during Phase 1 of reopening.
AEDP also announced that there will be industry-specific webinars to help guide local businesses on reopening policies.
- Fitness and Exercise facilities: Tomorrow (Wednesday) at 3 p.m.
- Restaurant and Beverage Services businesses: Tomorrow (Wednesday) at 4 p.m.
