RICHMOND, Va. – Gov. Ralph Northam addressed Virginians about the coronavirus on Wednesday afternoon.
He announced that he’s shifted June’s primary election back two weeks to June 23.
With General Assembly approval, he’d also like to move May’s election back to November.
PPE is being distributed across the state, according to Northam.
He said that so far, 1.5 million gloves and 430,000 N95 masks have been distributed to hospitals, nursing homes and other medical care facilities.
Last week, on Monday, the governor issued a stay-at-home order during his news conference.
