The governor of Virginia shut down Virginia schools until the end of the school year and nonessential businesses for the next 30 days.

Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced the closures at a Monday afternoon press conference where he emphasized that keeping schools closed is an important way to prevent the virus, WAVY reports.

“School closures are necessary to minimize the speed at which COVID19 spreads and protect the capacity of our healthcare system,” Northam said.

The Virginia governor also closed down nonessential businesses, such as hair salons and barber shops, and ordered restaurants to only serve takeout and delivery to customers for the next 30 days.
