What does the Governor’s Stay at Home Order mean for Arlingtonians?

In accordance with Governor Ralph Northam’s Stay At Home Order issued on March 30, 2020, Arlington County is telling all Arlingtonians to stay home.  (For more information, see Governor’s FAQ.)

  • Everyone is required to stay home, with exceptions for buying food, caring for family members, seeking medical attention, going to work, or volunteering for a nonprofit.
  • The governor’s order does allow individual exercise, provided people comply with social distancing guidelines of staying six feet apart from people outside their household.
  • All public and private gatherings or 10 or more people continue to be prohibited. Social distancing guidelines remain in place for small groups. This also applies to parks, fields, and other public areas.
  • Every Arlingtonian must do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing and frequent handwashing are the best way to combat the coronavirus. So stay at home to help save lives.
