Some of the biggest stories this week in Alexandria concerned the question: how quickly should governments move regulations to pre-pandemic levels, if at all?
The biggest example this week was Gov. Glenn Youngkin signing a bill ending mask mandates in schools. Like with Youngkin’s opposition to the grocery tax, it’s not a fully partisan issue, with three Democrats in the state senate backing the plan. The bill is effective immediately, but schools have until March 1 to comply. Alexandria’s School Board has already scheduled a meeting to discuss compliance with the new rule.
Locally, Alexandria’s Planning Commission will be taking a look at continuing eased restrictions on restaurants and businesses after local retail said they need more time to recover from this past winter’s omicron variant.
