Orange County is Retail Ready

Retail Ready

This year has been different, and we know things have been confusing. As we work together to navigate this "new normal," we won't be able to predict everything, but we can show our support for some of the incredible small businesses here in Orange County. 

From hand sanitizer to masks to social distancing,  local businesses are following the necessary protocols and are ready to welcome back customers safely.

Here's what you need to know to be "Retail Ready": 

  • In the State of Virginia, we are taking matters seriously to keep our residents and community members safe. Click here for the latest info from Governor Northam's office: Virginia Health Department.
  • For Orange County specific information, click here: Orange County.
  • As always, make sure you are up to date on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) consumer protocols!
