Executive Directive Ten (2020)
Authorizing the Chief Executive Officer of the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority to Take Certain Administrative Action Due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Importance of the Issue
On March 12, 2020, I declared a state of emergency in the Commonwealth of Virginia due to the potential impacts of the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and general welfare of Virginia residents require that state action be taken to help alleviate the conditions caused by this situation.
Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor under Article V of the Constitution of Virginia, § 44-146.17 of the Code of Virginia, and my continuing and ultimate authority and responsibility to act in such matters, I direct the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) to take the following measures:
Effective Date of this Executive Directive
This authority granted to ABC by this Executive Directive shall be effective from April 9, 2020, 11:59 p.m., and shall remain in full force and effect until Executive Order 51 expires, or is rescinded
Given under my hand and under the Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia, this 8th day of April, 2020.
