Virginia’s virus metrics have been mostly stable for the last two weeks, and the commonwealth is one of few states where cases are steady overall and under a daily average of 15 cases per 100,000 residents. Cases and hospitalizations are rising sharply overall across the nation, especially in the Midwest.

Northam is also expected to address a judge’s decision Tuesday to dissolve an injunction that blocked the removal of Richmond’s Robert E. Lee statue, siding with Northam.
