Coronavirus USA Updates: Virginia to require face coverings in public

Everyone ages 10 and above in Virginia must wear a face covering when inside or at a public place starting this Friday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said.

This includes while on public transportation, while inside all personal care and grooming establishments, and while inside food and beverage establishments.

Exceptions are for eating, drinking and exercising, as well as if health conditions prevent residents from wearing a covering, he said.

Law enforcement will not have a role in making sure that people wear masks, Northam said.

Virginia has over 39,000 cases of the coronavirus. At least 1,236 people have died.
