Plan Ahead, Be Prepared
We look forward to seeing you stroll down our cobblestone streets and relax at our waterfront, but ask that you plan ahead and do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19. While here, remember to practice physical distancing and to wear a mask, as face coverings are required in Virginia at all indoor public places, except when eating, drinking or exercising. Additionally, a mask should be worn when 6 feet of physical distance cannot be maintained, even outdoors. It is important to always have a mask with you as sometimes walkways, sidewalks and trails can become crowded unexpectedly.
