‘Hope for the future’: Entertainment venues prepare for bigger crowds under new guidelines
ROANOKE, Va. – Bigger crowds will soon be possible in Virginia thanks to the governor’s announcement Tuesday, loosening some restrictions. “It feels fantastic to see that we’re starting to open back up,” said Wendy Delano, director of civic facilities for Salem. Hope is on the horizon for hard-hit entertainment venues across the Commonwealth, allowed to welcome larger crowds starting April 1. The governor is easing restrictions to allow 30% capacity at those venues with no maximum outdoors. “Before you know it, we’ll be back to normal,” Delano said.
