Would you recommend advising the public against attending any public events, such as sporting events or high school graduations or political rallies or even public hearings before the Board?

(Updated 4/24/20): On March 23, 2020, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam issued Executive Order 53, effective through April 23, 2020, which banned all gatherings of more than 10 people and closed all public and private K-12 schools in Virginia for the remainder of the academic year. On March 30, 2020, Governor Northam issued Executive Order 55, which puts a statewide stay-at-home order in effect through June 10, 2020. 

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors continues to meet. The Board is conducting "electronic meetings" under the Emergency Ordinance adopted by the Board March 25, 2020.
