In order to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19, Virginia Governor Ralph S. Northam issued a Public Health Emergency Order mandating that all restaurants, fitness centers, and theaters “reduce seating capacity to 10 patrons” at a given time. To meet this mandate, the Virginia Beach Department of Public Health (Health Department) and the Virginia Beach Police Department are working together to protect the health and safety of the community. In doing so, we are educating local establishments to insure voluntary compliance. Please be informed that noncompliance with the emergency order may result in the suspension of the establishment’s operating permit.
We recognize the important service these establishments provide in our community, not only through the provision of food, drink, and entertainment, but also by supporting our local economy. However, to reduce the spread of COVID-19 virus, everyone must work together. The Health Department are asking restaurants, fitness centers, and theaters to strictly adhere to the executive order until otherwise noted. While we do not intend to assertively patrol local businesses in search of those in violation of this order, we will respond to complaints for such violations as authorized in the Public Health Emergency Order. By working together we will stay strong, healthy, and overcome the challenges posed by this disease.
