Dr. Norman Oliver, the State’s Health Commissioner, said that more tests from private labs will add to the total amount of positive Coronavirus cases.
Governor, Ralph Northam said “This is hard on people’s morale. It is very very stressful, it is scary. We are all experiencing big unwanted changes and we don’t know how long this will all last.”
The state health commissioner stressed the fact that there is no medicine for COVID-19, no vaccine, and the only thing that can prevent the spread of this disease is social distancing.
