Although Governor Northam’s press conference was supposed to be about the COVID-19 crisis, much of the time was spent on other issues.   But Northam did say that he did not have any news about moving from phase 2 to phase 3 restrictions, he would have more to say on the subject Thursday.   Most of Virginia including the Eastern Shore is now in phase 2.   Virginia has experienced a steady reduction in the number of new cases and deaths over the last few weeks.

The Eastern Shore’s new case reports have steadily decreased after peaking in early May.
