Each Quarter the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce will host a membership benefit webinar to discuss how to best use all of the options available to members. This is free to both members and non-members to use as a tool to take advantage of what we offer in order to better their businesses. This quarter we will be doing an overview of the benefits of being a member, chamber solutions, and how to navigate the website since it is updated quite frequently. Join us live to be able to participate in our Q&A or review the video later on our Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce YouTube page.
new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on mask use in outdoor settings. The CDC guidelines state that fully vaccinated individuals do not have to wear masks outdoors when alone or in small gatherings.

People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last required dose of vaccine.—Governor Ralph Northam today amended Executive Order Seventy-Two to adopt
“The CDC’s recommendations underscore what we have said all along—vaccinations are the way we will put this pandemic behind us and get back to normal life,” . “Our increasing vaccination rate and decreasing number of new COVID-19 cases has made it possible to ease mitigation measures in a thoughtful and measured manner. I encourage all Virginians who have not yet received the vaccine to make an appointment today.”
