I want to wish Muslims celebrating this weekend a very happy Eid to you and your family! Eid Mubarak. This pandemic has truly made it a tough time to celebrate holidays like Ramadan, Easter or Passover. I want to thank everyone of all the many faiths celebrating these past few months for their patience and understanding during this difficult situation.
We are now more than two months into this state of emergency. I know it’s been a tough few months. This pandemic has truly tested the strength and resolve of our community. We here in the 51st District and the rest of NoVA continue to follow the necessary restrictions put in place over the past two months. The signs are certainly in our favor, but we must continue to stay at home.
Today marks the beginning of Phase 1 for much of Virginia. However here in the 51st District, and throughout Northern Virginia, we remain in Phase 0. We must stay the course now so we can prevent further spread. I know it’s tough, but we in Northern Virginia must continue to stay at home for everyone’s safety.
