The Greater Williamsburg Clinic celebrated its 20,000 vaccination on Friday, April 30.
With 1,341 doses administered on Friday, the clinic operating out of the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center has reached 20,875 total vaccinations since its opening on Friday, Jan 22, 2021.
Earlier this week, Gov. Ralph Northam updated Virginia’s outdoor mask policy to align with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Fully vaccinated Virginians do not have to wear a mask in outdoor settings except for large, crowded events like graduations and sporting events. Additionally, capacity limits for outdoor recreational sporting events were expanded to 1,000 spectators, effective immediately rather than on Sunday, May 15 as previously announced.
Starting Sunday, May 15:
- The maximum number of individuals permitted in a social gathering will increase to 100 people for indoor settings and 250 for outdoor settings.
- Indoor entertainment and public amusement venues will be allowed to operate at 50% capacity or 1,000 people. Outdoor venues will be able to operate at 50% capacity.
- The number of spectators allowed at indoor recreation sporting events will be set at 250 spectators or 50% capacity, whichever is less.
- Restaurants may return to selling alcohol after midnight, and dining room closures will no longer be required between midnight and 5 a.m.
Please remember to wear a mask, maintain physical distance from others, and wash your hands. People who have been vaccinated should continue to follow mitigation strategies.
The City of Williamsburg has posted its weekly vaccination update to its online hub, which collects the latest coronavirus information and visual data. This data includes the number of vaccinations administered at the Greater Williamsburg Clinic.
