ARLINGTON COUNTY, Va. ‘ Groups of three or more people are now banned from gathering on Arlington streets and sidewalks under a new emergency order adopted by the Arlington County Board Friday.

The new ordinance only applies to areas posted with the restrictions and is an attempt to mandate social distancing for the county. Pedestrians are still required to keep at least six feet of space between one another.

Libby Garvey, a board chair for Arlington County, said Friday that the initiative comes as a way to remind Arlington residents the seriousness of the virus. Many bars and restaurants have seen large crowds as groups wait for socially distanced tables, while others are situated on busy streets where groups can intertwine.
