Masks, Distancing, and Other Requirements

In May 2021, Governor Northam lifted all capacity limits and distancing restrictions, and eliminated the mask mandate (but suggests that unvaccinated people should still wear a mask). Businesses can choose to continue requiring masks; also:

  • The CDC guidelines state that fully-vaccinated individuals do not have to wear masks in most indoor settings, except on public transit, in health care facilities, and in congregate settings.
  • Businesses retain the ability to require masks in their establishments.
  • Employees who work in certain business sectors—including restaurants, retail, fitness, personal care, and entertainment—must continue to wear masks unless fully vaccinated, per CDC guidance.
