Masks still legal for protection come June 30

Governor Ralph Northam has announced that Virginia’s state of emergency due to COVID-19 will end on June 30, 2021. A state law making it unlawful to wear a mask in public with the intent to conceal one’s identity will go back into full effect on that day. The same law permits the wearing of masks to protect the safety of the wearer and other persons.
