Virginia Governor Issues Statewide Stay Home Order Until June 10th…

An executive order [Full pdf Here] from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam requires all residents of Virginia to remain in lock-down until June 10, 2020.  Virginia is essentially shut down for three months…. But don’t forget to pay your taxes comrades.

RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today issued a statewide Stay at Home order to protect the health and safety of Virginians and mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. The executive order takes effect immediately and will remain in place until June 10, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by a further executive order.

The order directs all Virginians to stay home except in extremely limited circumstances. Individuals may leave their residence for allowable travel, including to seek medical attention, work, care for family or household members, obtain goods and services like groceries, prescriptions, and others as outlined in Executive Order Fifty-Three, and engage in outdoor activity with strict social distancing requirements.

The executive order also directs all Virginia institutions of higher education to stop in-person classes and instruction. Private campgrounds must close for short-term stays, and beaches will be closed statewide except for fishing and exercise. (read more)

      Va has become the most liberal of states. Amazing how Northern Va spill-over from liberal DC and illegals has turned that once proud state in this. And no doubt, the Gov and Lt Gov are both frauds and had either been a Conservative, would have been removed from office. Sadly, NC and other states are about to become the same victims. Relocations from the NE and illegals have overrun NC and will soon out vote the rural areas of NC that have typically carried the state. And the GOP PARTY doesn’t give one dang…they have left the southern border open and knowingly allow fraudulent voters in each election. Last election, there were over 35,000 voters that were readily KNOWN to have voted in NC and Va….

        This guy is a dope. Says something poor about Virginia medical schools – how this dope graduated. Since I am under this order, nothing has changed from what we were already doing. But, he has doomed the services: hotel, fishing and restaurant businesses. We have large parts of the State with NO cases.

        So far as the State wide politics go – Arlington, Fairfax, now Loudon, and Chester country – push the State blue everytime. The entire State goes Red but for these hot beds. Hot beds of voter fraud –> IMHO.

          To always and I mean always blame losses to democrats based on vote fraud is shallow – very shallow. Virginia is a blue state and it is that simple. Over 1 out of 4 votes originate in Northern Virginia because that is where the voters live. You can make a big deal out of the rural vote, but many counties that vote 80% republican generate only a few thousand total votes. To win in Virginia, you have to appeal to the suburban voter and republicans are not at the moment. Va, Beach only votes about 50/50 now, The whole country is moving slowly left every few years, some areas faster than others. Trump is just a temporary speed bump, that’s all. There is really very little he can do to stop it.

    We are seeing the willful ignorance and naked malevolence of our “leadership” and its administrative apparatus.

    Let’s say some of the WORST predictions about this virus are true, in terms of its aggressive spread and lethality — it’s quite obvious the shut-down lines should NOT be drawn or conceived on a statewide basis; the disease incubates and explodes in metropolitan areas — for obvious reasons — and some sooner than others (NY, Seattle). So if there must be lock downs, start there. The obvious way to do it is to roll “stay at home” orders through MAJOR CITIES, leaving most of the geographical mass of the country free and open. This disease will largely burn itself out in the major cities … of course it may hit less-populated areas … but this is first and foremost on urbanites. They need to stay the hell home — quit traveling throughout the country.

    Vast swaths of the country should NOT be held hostage by this for months on end! MAYBE eventually a lockdown will hit everywhere — if/when the virus makes its way … but it is BEYOND outrageous for counties in VA (and elsewhere across the country) that have none or maybe one case to already be on lock down. And think — back when NYC had a few cases, it’s Mayor and Health officials were still encouraging residents to take the subway and go to parades!! Now they’re expecting the WHOLE COUNTRY to shelter in place and send its equipment and health workers to NY.

    I know many doubt the numbers on how bad the virus is. What gets me is EVEN IF it is that bad, you’re seeing the biases of urban professionals all over this — the ones who “went about normal life” when taking the virus seriously was “racist”; who now easily work at home with no personal sacrifice (or bug out to second homes, spreading the virus); who expect the plebes to keep delivering their groceries and collecting their trash; all the while advocating ruin for vast swaths of the country who simply want their own chance to balance safety with livelihood.

    This plan of the State of Virginia sounds great on paper… it really isn’t of course. Other than the problems to the economy, small business, people, children and everything else there is another issue at play here.

    If no one much is around to get the virus it doesn’t die. It just waits until someone comes out of hiding and pounces. Much better to let young, non compromised adults get it, while protecting the old and people with health issues. They won’t overload the health system and when things open up there are many, many more dead ends where the virus can’t go anywhere.

    On one level I’m really ‘annoyed’ that my business is dying but I’m seeing young people breaking the stay home orders to play basketball or volleyball or meet up with their girlfriend, or adults going grocery shopping 5 times a week and shopping at Home Depot or Target. The flip side of that, is they are more likely to get it and have very little problems. They increase the possibility that the rebound won’t be as bad.

    Well, well, well. Lots of suggestions here. One I didn’t see is this: Hundreds of thousands of Virginians should descend on the governor’s private residence and raise their voices in anger. That’s just for starters.

    It’ll never happen. Not enough real men left. In my decades dealing with various govt agencies in the course of my business, incl FBI and BATF, and LE from local to state, 99.5% of the American public I’ve met turn into jelly whenever confronted by govt/LE. NO ONE UNDERSTANDS their civil rights. NO ONE. Everyone wants to talk to LE, “I can explain and they’ll let me go”.

    If you’re expecting mass civil disobedience you won’t find it from white conservatives, white gun owners, or white anything. Except Antifa. All others are Wonder Bread. Blacks, Latinos, even illegals will march, demonstrate, even riot in the streets over the smallest infraction on their rights.

    Not us. No one’s got the balls. And no one’s gonna do it alone, either. There’s strength in numbers and no civilian is going to go up against Godzilla of Govt all alone.

    What America needs now, besides mass civil disobedience, is for the faithful who’ve been called to kneel before our Maker in supplication and prayer. Because no one’s ever gonna go hot. And because He is our dwelling place, and in Him all things are held together.

    Our enemy, as much as we don’t believe it, isn’t the VA governor or that baby faced Nazi sheriff. Our enemy is unseen. Powerful. In control of the VA governor and sheriff. The whole world and the world system (cosmos) is his. His name is Satan. HE IS MOTIVATING POWER BEHIND THE DEMONRAT PARTY.

    We can’t shoot him. Can’t stab him. Bayonet him. Strangle him. Or kill him. Our weapon is more powerful than any two edged sword; the Word of God. I pray those in the faith across our great and once Godly nation kneel in humility before our Father in Heaven and pray fervently for victory over the forces of darkness that’ve enveloped and taken over our country; and that He will not just remove them or defeat them, but will destroy them from the face of the earth, that His will may once more be the law of the land.

    Now you pray, also.

    It’s all about hospital resource needed based on management. Projections are here.

    You can pull down on a state and see the projection for them. We can’t ask hospital medical staff/hospital workers to face a unmanaged situation. They don’t deserve that. No one wants to be infected with Covid19.

    Dr. Birx’s model her team built from ground up from data after reviewing 12 other models came up with essentially the same numbers as the model at the link. She spoke about that yesterday at the press conference.

    The governor is doing a horrible job on communicating the resources, risks and strategy. There is no trust in government. That happens after you try and take other freedoms away…like the 2nd ammendment rights. He must overcome that, and he doesn’t have any political capital. The President and VP will have to help Gov. Northram communicate. He’ll have to ask.

    Be appreciative, Ralph, of the bitter clingers and deplorables. Be appreciative of your President and VP and the federal response team.

    ‘As if a storm hit’: more than 40 Italian health workers have died since crisis began
    Majority of those infected during early stages in the north when protective equipment lacking
    Angela Giuffrida and Lorenzo Tondo
    Thu 26 Mar 2020


    The virus has infected more than 5,000 doctors, nurses, technicians, ambulance staff and other health employees. The majority were on the frontline in the badly affected northern regions and contracted the illness at the start of the outbreak when protective equipment was lacking.

    “It’s as if a storm hit us,” said Roberto Stellini, a doctor of infectious diseases at Poliambulanza hospital in Brescia. “The problem is that when this storm hit us we were unprepared, perhaps ignoring what might have been the consequences. Some of the dead were doctors who died at the beginning of the emergency, when we knew nothing about this storm. I knew some of them. Now we are more prepared and we continue to fight

    I can see democrat governors trying to keep the economy shut down as long as possible to make Trumps job of getting working as good as it was so he can’t use the economy for his election in November. Towards the middle to end of April if they have a good handle on this virus (have it mapped out and understand better) Trump needs to do whatever he can to reign in these power hungry democrats who are not really doing it for public safety,they are grandstanding and saying Hey look at me I care more than the President does about you. They are using the Virus as a weapon to try and get the upper hand in November.
    Like NY trying to say he needs 30 ventilators and come to find out the 4000 that were sent were sitting in a warehouse not being used. Don’t get me wrong he’s doing a great job for NY but he’s still trying to sneak jabs in any chance he gets. and in interviews every one of them are saying things that they will try to build narratives around in 2 or 3 months.
    There is no 2 ways about it, we are damn lucky we have President Trump on the job. I just finished watching some of his older videos circa 1980,1986 and he is saying the exact same thing about how this government is working ,or i should say not working. We’ve have nothing but political hacks and idiots running this country for years. (depending on your party) it doesn’t matter how much you fail the media still writes very positive stories and never points out the incompetence or failures. I feel 10,000 X better knowing President Trump is in charge .

    | A public health order from the City of Cleveland during the 1918 flu pandemic may sound familiar to many 102 years later.

    Close churches, schools, libraries and theaters. No more public weddings or funerals. Loitering in restaurants and saloons is prohibited. Avoid crowded elevators.

      VA, like many other states, suffers from the urban/rural political divide. The CV response seems to be playing out according to that dynamic. I believe the solution will ultimately have to be the peaceful re-drawing of state lines. In your state’s particular case, DC and N.VA could join Maryland while the rest of VA joins WVa. Or we could peacefully break up into say 3 different countries. Or we could fight it out physically. But if NY is any example, the powers that be have no problem whatsoever with the rural parts of the state withering and becoming virtually extinct. That’s VA’s future.

Looks like COVID19 got off to a slow start. June 10 may seem excessive, but the numbers appear to support the governor’s timetable. He should look at county data to determine if certain areas can be opened earlier.
