Episode Notes



“Everyone who is gathering in a crowd at any place around the state is putting themselves and others at risk so today I am announcing a stay at home order for all Virginians. Under this order everyone in Virginia must remain in their place of residence unless they must go out for food, supplies, work, medical care or to get fresh air or exercise.”  - Governor Ralph Northam, March 30, 2020

“What we’re seeing now is the result of how people interacted two or three weeks ago. What we will see a few weeks now will be determined by how people behave today and in the following days. We need people to be patient with social distancing. It will take time to show results. That’s why it’s so critical to do our part and stay at home.” 
 - Governor Ralph Northam, March 30, 2020
