CDCWear a cloth face covering to slow the spread of coronavirus. Growing evidence suggests the virus can spread:

• Before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) and
• From people who have the virus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic).

This really isn’t that hard. I’m confident most people know the difference between medically wearing a mask and attempting to conceal their identity. If ABC, military bases, law enforcement etc... ask people to remove their mask for a few seconds to verify ID people will.

Where can facial masks be bought.

Wow. Lots of arrests coming October 31. Poor little guys

Y'all have at it I'm not wearing mask, I hardly come in contact with ppl before this act of fear-mongering.

Govenor stated that no one would stopped or ticketed during the virus if they were wearing a mask in public.

We all understand that but, the line is being blurred by these homemade masks. Hard to tell if a person is trying to avoid getting infected or planning to rob the place just at a glance.

So no hamburglar costumes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Government doesn't need to know where I am or what I'm doing.

Should have enforced this law in Charlottesville.

I should be able to hide my identity if I feel like it.

Tim Kaine's son got busted out of state for this law, back when he was protesting. Never heard outcome. Perhaps he got a free pass bc of dad or bc he was protesting...... Anyone have any intel?

Im sure everyone will know the difference ...

US National Weather Service Blacksburg VAScattered thunderstorms return to the area again today as a warm, summerlike air mass and a weak frontal boundary in the vicinity keep weather conditions unsettled. There is a possibility that a few of these today could become severe producing quarter-sized hail and damaging wind gusts. The best chance for thunderstorms will be near Interstate 64 and northward. Northern Virginia has a higher threat for thunderstorms than does southwest Virginia.

The threat for thunderstorms will continue Wednesday and Thursday until a front arrives and brings much cooler temperatures and an end to the precipitation.

CDCUse a cloth face covering in public to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Your cloth face covering should:

โœ”๏ธReach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
โœ”๏ธFit snugly against the sides of the face
โœ”๏ธBe made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through
โœ”๏ธBe able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings. Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels. bit.ly/2Ravt42

For those that may not know it already. Virginia has signs on all the major highways, stating 80 is reckless driving! So. If your on a 70MPH road, you DON'T get the 15 MPH over cushion before it gets a reckless charge!

This is one thing I need to remember when I return to Virginia. Living in Germany on the Autobahn in a lot of sections there are no speed limits. I'm so used to going 90-120 Mph. (160-195 Kph). I hope that I will never have a date under these circumstances with the Virginia State Police!!

I don't endorse speeding but I'd like to offer a slight correction. Speeding doesn't kill you. It's that sudden unexpected and violent stop that will get you every time.

I understand that he was speeding but this is Insane. Slapping someone with a reckless driving with 11 year on his record. Let audit the ticket log and see when was the last time a state trooper or a judge got a ticket.

100 MPH must have been a young person LOL as when I was 18 I got a ticket in Pulaski on old hospital hill 83 in a 25 straight to jail and that was in 1975 and then it cost my parents $6300 bail, fine, not worth it

I've noticed many, many people speeding around Albemarle and Greene. I guess now that traffic is lighter than usual (but not as light as it should be), people feel free to go 20mph+ over the speed limit. And several will do it, weaving in and out together like it's a game.

Important Reminder! Thankful for your help in maintaining safety on our roads for all of us.

Should be able to write these state troopers speeding tickets, after the vise president left zions the other day we was headed home going 70 (speed limit) and 3 flew past me like I was sitting still not going anywhere with no lights on just speeding ๐Ÿ™„ but constantly writing everyone else tickets. Couple thanksgivings ago I got pulled over and got a speeding ticket from a vsp and was 70 in a 55 and I had it on cruise control at 55 and he told the judge his estimated my speed and judge still charged me lol, also 5 people he gave tickets too had same speed. So a trooper can lie and estimate and destroy a clean record but we tell the truth and judges want to be paid. Weird how that works out huh?

Last year there was a high speed chase from Pulaski county virginia to Christiansburg. When they caught the guy he said he always wanted to be chased by cops and had a huge smile in the picture. Does anyone know what he got for that? Id love to know

When the governor of a State lets everyone know that the police will not be enforcing laws, guess what happens? Information should have been for PD eyes only. Many citizens know that the PD are laying low

Been years ago when i was driving my 68 Camaro. Rounded a curve and you guessed it. Meet a highway patrol, knewvthat he had me so I pulled over after a few minutes sure nuff he had turned around, turned on his blues and pulled in behind me, had all my paperwork ready to go. He asked me Mr Lee if you can give me one good reason you were doing 80 in a 55 when I meet you I will let you go. Without breaking a smile i told him when i saw him I was slowing down. He chuckled, gave me back my paper work and said thats the best one i have ever heard and he gave me a warning laughing as he walked away. True story.

In a hurry too met Mr. Gream Reaper. Good thing he met the trooper first, all he got is ticket. Imagine that.... keep everyone #safe

VA State Police should share with us on Facebook. the 10 best excuses they received when pulling over someone for speeding... 10 best excuses and go!

I REMEMBER IN VA. IF THEY CLOCKED YOU OVER A 100 IT WAS DRAG RACING AND FORFEITURE OF VECHICAL. wonder if that is still in effect.?

Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of speeding going up and down on I-95 from Richmond to Fredericksburg recently.

Good job officer I Drove a truck and when I got a ticket I tried to talk my way out but all the same time new I Deserve its

Is that a Ford? He'll be posting that on FB just to show his Chevy friends, yes, it can go that fast! LoL

if/when are they going to enforce it on 64 in Williamsburg at construction zone its like Talladega out there every day

NC the ticket is written as a speeding ticket you just have to get a lawyer or discuss it with the Judge

In York County he/she would be going to jail to be bonded and counsel determination. More than likely going to jail if convicted.

I got a ticket going 104 on I81 and it was a 1300 ticket and I lost my license! I don’t recommend it. 3 years of SR22 sucked as well.

Yep this why I’m glad someone is posting these tickets to show others to slow down they are still speeding everywhere not just interstates

Need more State Troopers on I81 in Winchester...this ticket would be written many times a day.

Was he driving a delorian? Ticket issued july of 2020?

This makes me mad that someone would be that inconsiderate of other human lives!

Got my last speeding ticket in Washington County last year. County Deputy, not VSP, simply doing his job. BTW, the VSP is the most professional, dedicated law enforcement agency out there. Just because you got caught doing something stupid dont blame LEO's.

VSP gives plenty of leeway at least here in Hampton Roads...and probably more so now with the virus issues. Every day going home traffic passes a trooper working radar at speeds10-15 mph over and he doesnt go after them..probably cuz there are plenty others doing 20+ over the limit

I was in the wrong but got 10 days in jail( no weekends), 2500 fines, 90 days no license( no restricted), and then 750 for a lawyer. For 132 in a 55 in Chesterfield county. Never had a speeding ticket before that and was +5 driving record.

If I was a Trooper reading some of these comments, I would embed their names in my brain and throw the book at you when I caught you! You do know they have license plate readers? Of course, they are professionals and couldn’t do that! To the VSP, stay safe out there! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Grew up learning to drive on the autobahn. There is no fundamentally safe or unsafe speed. There is just a safe speed for conditions which has nothing to do with an artificial speed limit. I have driven very safely at 120mph and not at all safely at 50mph. This is simply a fundraiser.

Lot of people can barely control a vehicle at low speeds, but 102mph! Hope he/she has a bicycle to ride... don't see them having a license after that.

It's not hard to get up to speed beyond the limit . I didn't many years ago ( over 35yrs) not many cars on 81 back then. Then I saw! The huge billboard that said- Watch your speed! I looked, I was doing 100.! I couldn't believe it. But that ol Pontiac drove like dream. The limit then was 55. I was driving two ol ladies to southern Va . In their car no less.

Stay safe and healthy guys. You have to do your job to keep us safe. As an essential employee im glad to see them out still giving tickets to the idiots that think this is a free for all. The law is still the law even now. Ppl doing stupid stuff like this is putting the others on the road in jeopardy as well as the officer that pulled him over. Thank you guys.

Can you guys give tickets for those going under the speed limit in the pass lane? Because.. That's still an issue and doesn't seem to be enforced.

THANK YOU Virginia State Troopers for ALL you do to serve and protect us.God Bless each of you and your families.

Good job trooper! There are so many irresponsible drivers on the road....speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, driving at night without headlights on, texting, see it every day on 95.

Under no circumstances should anyone drive at this speed. You're putting yourself and everyone else on the road in danger. Totally reckless. Thank you #VSP for all you do.

Instead of just a summons. Should have arrested the driver too and let them wait on a date for hearing the case. Obviously they had no consideration for other lives on the road!

When one of my coworkers gave me a letter from our employer saying I was allowed to drive to and from work (which I know isn't necessary) he actually tried to tell me it would get me out of a speeding ticket... no clue where he got that idea

Thank you. Many folks continue to drive recklessly especially on roads with very little traffic!

Surprised all he got was a citation. Triple digit gets you arrested.

clearly the driver was not driving a Prius....

Anything over 100mph, usually gets you a meeting with the magistrate.

And yet all the Troopers on 495 are still getting paid to look for toll violations on the $1.50 HOT lanes these days, while people in the regular lanes (from Maryland) drive 100mph at will. SMH

With that speed you should get a trip to the Mag's Office and your veh towed and that is just for starters. Just my thoughts

Those are rookie numbers, try 186 in a 55

The law is still the law. Doesn’t mean you get a free pass

You can make with filters, and use other techniques. I make surgeon-type masks with ties, over 135 so far. Also, sanitized paper masks smell so bad many workers wear cloth under the paper masks.

The thing about these home made masks is without a filter they will keep the virus IF YOU HAVE IT from infecting others but will NOT prevent you from getting it. The fabric threads are not dense enough to keep the virus from being pulled into your nose and mouth breathing in from those that have contracted the virus!!! This information is spot on from the medical field! DO NOT use these masks for prevention!!!!

God bless you all for your caring hearts during this of crisis. โฃ๏ธ

Do neighboring states also have the same policy, or are you aware of states preventing unauthorized travel

This coming Sunday I must travel from Indiana to Virginia. I work in Telecommunications. What are the restrictions for day time travel?

I hope the troopers are up to date with this, a friend of mine was stopped on her way to work, and asked where she was going... ??? I'm confused as to why.

Maybe someone should tell the woman trooper from around the castlewood va area pulling people over and asking them where they are going and what are they doing.

Just glad I have papers issued by my Co. as a essential worker to give me passage if there is a state lock down. If this does take place I hope there will be a sticker placed on our windshields after the first stop so we are not stopped dozens of times and end up late for work. That way any other officers stop us will pass us on through.

So is the NEW ? I know of some guys that were getting stopped on 95 to go to DC

So an essential employee traveling from North Carolina to Maryland will be able to travel with no interruptions? Asking because they are driving up here to volunteer

So basically he wasted time and money putting together this "stay at home order." It would be nice if the police were actually out here trying to keep us safe by stopping unnecessary travel. I haven't seen a trooper in 3 days. Pathetic

My daughter and husband are in very compromising jobs. He is an officer in s prison and she is a RN. Please pray for them. Joe and I can stay home

I can’t believe why the citizens don’t understand the order. You do not have to carry documents but they can stop you to see if you are abiding by the Executive Order. Do any of you realize just how many are not following safety guidelines? If you get stopped, JUST ANSWER THEIR QUESTIONS and follow their instructions.

So what should I do if I'm harassed by a local police officer to show documentation that I'm an essential employee?

Thank God, because all of that would be illegal.

How they enforment parties post it in social media if police cannot do nothing with a physical address why the department dont have media investigators at this time a lot of crimes are posted on socila media

So why are people being stopped ? My sons coworkers , 2 of them , were stopped asking where they were going. They were in work vans with markings clearly on the van. Don’t get me wrong , I’m all for it if that’s necessary but why were they stopped ???

I know a couple people here in Spotsylvania county who have been pulled over by sheriffs asking what their purpose of travel is.

Am I allowed to travel from my home in Maryland to my family farm in Virginia? What about returning to Maryland ? I’m just not clear on it . Where could I find that information ? Thank you .

We are still a free country and state..just need to use common sense.

I have been curious about this as I live in Chesterfield, but work in Wilmington and come home every other weekend most weeks. Been worried about if travel will be restricted.

I have seen no policy about being stopped and questioned. What is the status of this? Get badge numbers and record people. This is NOT ok to be stopped and questioned at this point.

Thank you for clearing that up!

Thank goodness because my son drives an 18-wheeler and he’s been in about 10 states since last week

I believe they are checking to make sure people are not out for “unnecessary” reasons. We can still go to work and the store etc.

Well someone needs to tell 29 news on here that! Cause it states the State police department is enforcing stops!

Are Va state inspections delayed for 60 days esp. since covid19 is extremely contagious if we let other people enter our car? Virginia State Police

Then it's not a stay at home order!

Do you have this in writing? My boss wants to see it in writing, not on a live conference.

My car is due for a safety inspection in April. Will garages etc. continue to perform inspections?

I travel from accomac county to crisfield, md and back every day. Wanna kno how many cops I've seen the past two nights? 2. I have not seen one out of state person pulled over. If the government is going to place these orders, law enforcement needs to be out there keeping people that are traveling off the streets. I drive a forklift and I'm deemed "essential" but you can't get out there and do your job? There hasn't even been troopers at the weigh station.

We have lost a lot of people here in WA. Stay home and quit spreading the virus..We should have been put on lockdown a lot sooner than we were..Lots of people aren't staying home and the virus is killing more people..Take this serious before you lose your loved ones.

This isn’t a lockdown. When you’re still free to go golfing, fishing, hiking, restaurant drive thrus are open, shopping stores(not grocery) are still open, pretty much free to do what you want. All he asked is not to be in groups larger than 10 and keep social distancing. No consequences, no curfew. THAT isn’t a lockdown. Sorry.

What if your teen children drive back and forth between divorced parents homes? Is this allowed? Example, stay at dad’s for a week & mom’s for a week.

When does the stay home start how are you going 10 person at large stores and restaurants

ReginanRocky Shuffleburg i think you can still ride a motorcycle. He said you can go outdoors. Just maintain the 6 feet which being on a motorcycle would put you in that category

Curfew will not do anything

Hopefully this will all be over in May...so our summer isn’t ruined...

Can businesses that don’t obey the orders and are not essential be reported

So people can play golf,but I can’t ride a motorcycle?

Sweet golf courses still allowed as an exercise!!

What do you do if a non essential business refuses to close? Can you report them?

if you work at a grocery store and you are 68 and get pts if you call out should you go in?

It’s about time

How about posting the laws so people don't get harassed by police for no reason

So...... nothing changed. Thanks for that big announcement

Roanoke Man Charged in Federal Criminal Complaint: Michael Jerome Patterson Charged with Methamphetamine, Fentanyl, Illegal Firearms Charges

Roanoke, VIRGINIA โ€“ Michael Jerome Patterson, 37, of Roanoke Va., was charged in a federal criminal complaint filed with the court yesterday with a series of charges related to possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and fentanyl, as well as being a previously convicted felon illegally in possession of a firearm, and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. The charges were announced today by United States Attorney Thomas T. Cullen.

The criminal complaint charges Patterson, who is currently on federal supervised release for a previous conviction, with one count of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, one count of possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl, one count of being a previously convicted felon illegally in possession of a firearm, and one count of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

โ€œDespite the unprecedented and challenging circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic, we are totally committed to protecting the public and enforcing federal law,โ€ said U.S. Attorney Cullen. โ€œI am particularly grateful for the dedication and bravery of our agents and local police officers who continue to do this critical work while risking their own health and well-being.โ€

According to court documents, the alleged criminal activity occurred on or about November 8, 2019 in Salem, Virginia.

The investigation of the case was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Virginia State Police, and the City of Roanoke Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan Jones is prosecuting the case for the United States.

A criminal complaint is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial with the burden on the government to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

.Really scary time for pharmacies I’d suspect. The potential for an inside job..swapping real therapeutic prescriptions with placebos? Hey, VSP Facebook PR page admin, in your opinion are real criminal cases still being investigated during this covid19 interruption or have all resources been transferred to spread of infection prevention? Thank you....

Virginia’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has published statistics of animal shelter records for 2019, and the numbers for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are shocking. According to the report, PETA killed 1,593 dogs, cats, and other pets last year–a repulsive 66% kill rate. Of the 2,380 pets the organization took in, only 32 pets were adopted out. (Several hundred other pets were sent to other facilities.) Since 1998, PETA has killed over 40,000 cats, dogs, and other animals in Virginia. In comparison, other private animal shelters are doing much better when it comes to finding homes for animals. Official records show private animal shelters in Virginia had a euthanasia rate of just 5% and an adoption rate of 73% last year. PETA was ultimately responsible for 72% of the dogs and cats killed at Virginia’s 45 private shelters. A ledger of PETA’s official body count can be found here. PETA has a history of unethical behavior when it comes to their “angel of death” shelter program. In 2014, PETA dognapped a healthy Chihuahua off its owner’s property. The poor pup was euthanized the same day it was taken; PETA paid about $50,000 to settle a subsequent lawsuit. In 2005, two of the organization’s employees faced 31 felony animal cruelty charges for killing and dumping dogs in a dumpster.

Sadly, #VSP today also sends prayers aNevada Highway Patrol family and fellow members of Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Ben Jenkins. #RIP #neverforget ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–คWe are devastated to report that Sergeant Ben Jenkins #4196 was killed in the line of duty this morning. Sgt. Jenkins had stopped to assist a motorist on US-93 in the White Pine county area. During this contact, the motorist open fired on Sgt. Ben Jenkins, who was struck and killed. The motorist stole the Sergeant's uniform and fled the scene in Sgt. Jenkins' patrol vehicle. Following a search that lasted several hours, the suspect was located and taken into custody with the assistance of multiple agencies.

47-year-old Sgt. Jenkins was an Elko native who devoted his life to public service and to serving Nevadans. He began working for the Highway Patrol in March 2008 as a Trooper in Jackpot and was promoted to Sergeant in Elko in 2017. Prior to NHP, he was a training officer for the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division, a crew supervisor for the Nevada Division of Forestry, an Assistant Fire Chief for the Spring Creek Volunteer Fire Department, and a veteran of both the Army National Guard and Air National Guard. In 2011, Jenkins received the Nevada Department of Public Safety's highest honor, the Gold Medal of Valor, which is presented to officers who perform an extraordinary act of heroism.

He is survived by his wife, his mother, four children, and five grandchildren. This is a time of tremendous grief for our agency, his family, and our communities. A memorial service is pending and that information will be forthcoming at a later date.

#4196, rest easy. We've got the watch from here.

#VSP extends our condolences and prayers to the family and fellow troopers of North Carolina State Highway Patrol Trooper Trooper Nolan J. Sanders. #RIP #neverforget ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–คNorth Carolina State Trooper Dies in Traffic Collision

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is mourning the loss of one of its members from a traffic collision in Wayne County. Trooper Nolan J. Sanders, a five-year veteran of the State Highway Patrol, was involved in a single vehicle collision while on duty in his assigned duty station of Troop C, District 2 (Wayne County).

Trooper Sanders was traveling north on I-795 at approximately 7:17 pm when his patrol vehicle traveled off the roadway near the 19.5-mile marker. The vehicle struck a concrete culvert off the right shoulder of the roadway and came to rest near impact. Trooper Sanders was pronounced deceased at the scene of the collision.

“Our SHP family is devastated by the loss of Trooper Nolan Sanders this evening,” said commander of the State Highway Patrol, Colonel Glenn M. McNeill, Jr. “Trooper Sanders personified what it meant to be a Trooper, his passing will leave a lasting mark on all that had the honor to work together with him. The coming days and weeks will prove to be difficult, but we will stand with the Sanders family throughout this difficult process.”

The SHP Collision Reconstruction Unit is handling the ongoing investigation.

A happy ending tonight for a #CarolineCounty family thx to the efforts & eagle eye of Chesterfield County Fire and EMS Flight Paramedic Nik Ronesi! He, along with VCU Health Flight Nurse Jamie Graff & #VSP Aviation 1st Sergeant-Pilot Jeff Bush, assisted the Caroline County, Virginia Sheriff's Office - Official with the search for a missing 3-year-old girl. She had chased after the family's yellow lab and gotten lost in the woods. From the air, Ronesi spotted the lab's florescent collar. MedFlight 1 landed, Ronesi forged his way thru a marsh - waist high- and scooped up the little girl. Aside from being cold & a few scratches, she was not injured & got a quick flight back to her home where she was reunited with her parents. Oh...& don't worry about the lab! He passed on the ๐Ÿš ride, despite the crew's offer, and walked back to the house on his own. ๐Ÿพ ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you God for bringing our little one home safely, for Caroline County police and pilot/rescue workers from where ever they reside and anyone that played a part in her safe return including the person who purchased and put the color on that dog!

Sadly, not much opened on Opening Day 2020...but that actually made raising the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ for the 1st time this year at the Dream Fields in the Northern Neck even more important for our #VSP Troopers today. Our Nation's colors still fly with pride & give us the extra drive to dream for the future.

Dream Fields
Virginia State Troopers Robbie Cullison and Josh Hudson raise the colors for the first time this year at Dream Fields. Thank you for your service to our community. Let’s hope this all ends very soon.

How do you feel that so many people you 'serve' are unable to feed themselves while your bloated budgets continue to swell? Maybe citizens should start eating armored personnel carriers, bullet proof vests and automatic weapons. That's where their money went after all.

My job will not let me.

Seems most people are considered "essential" and the rest don't seem to heed such signs, so good luck with that.

I was wondering if you can come from Pennsylvania to Virginia during this time

May the odds be ever in your favor.

I wish i could! I work in a pharmacy

thanks for advertising on highway sign!

I am.

Curious if they make the permanent move to July 15 for tax date. They can do that, they permanently shifted the military pay day from the last day of the month to the first day of the month in the 1980s and it was pushed into the new fiscal year (sep 30 to oct 1) all for budget reasons

So much hate, so sad

Because even if everyone else has to stay home and not get paid all you pigs will continue to draw a paycheck.

Fact: FEMA does not have military assets. Emergency responses are most successful when they are locally executed, state managed and federally supported. Each governor deems what is necessary for the health and welfare of their citizens.

NOT great: Drivers on empty roads are using this time as an excuse to speed and drive unsafely. We still have active work zones, some people are commuting and traveling out of necessity. Please think of others and drive safely!
