We are excited that Virginia has entered Phase One of its plan to re-open Virginia’s economy. This phase affects many Bath County businesses, including retail shops, spas, restaurants, craft breweries, private campgrounds and more. In most cases, the partial re-opening has requirements, as well as suggested guidelines, that may limit the capacity of restaurants and shops. A detailed summary of the Phase One guidelines from the Virginia Restaurant Lodging and Travel Association can be found here. Many Bath County businesses are re-opening under the guidelines and are eager to serve customers. We suggest contacting the establishment first to check on their hours and availability.
Many events and large gatherings have been postponed out of an abundance of caution. Outdoor recreation remains one of the safest opportunities for exercise and family fun.
