Effective Wednesday, July 1, Virginia entered Phase 3 of the Forward Virginia plan to safely and gradually ease health restrictions while containing the spread of COVID-19. Please read Governor Northam’s Executive Order 67 and the Safer At Home: Phase Three Guidelines linked below to familiarize yourself with what you can expect in Phase 3. Please also note that guidelines established in Phases 1 and 2 remain in effect unless they are superseded by specific changes in the Phase 3 guidelines.
The easing of restrictions means that additional city facilities, including City Hall and the Irene Givens Administration Building, are reopening to the public. The public is encouraged to continue using the city drop box, pay by phone option and online services to conduct business to the greatest degree possible. Those citizens who must visit City Hall or the Administration Building in person will be required to follow safety protocols for the protection of building visitors and of government employees.
The City of Staunton is eager to continue supporting the community as we safely reinitiate local activities and services in the coming days and weeks.
