VRLTA Request for Governor to Classify Hospitality as Essential
As you may know from the Governor’s COVID-19 press conference, there has been a lot of confusion around essential and non-essential businesses and workers. While we have learned that restaurants must close their dining rooms, they may continue to offer takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery. Hotels and campgrounds can also remain open, but if there is a restaurant within that lodging establishment, it must do either room service or carryout/pickup. To reinforce the critical nature of restaurants and lodging establishments, VRLTA has sent correspondence to the Governor urging him to classify these hospitality related businesses and their employees as essential.
