As America continues to open up for business in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, here’s what you need to know to protect your business and your personal interests.

    Valued Clients and Friends:

    You will be pleased to know that on May 28, 2021, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam lifted indoor mask mandate to align with CDC guidelines. You can find his announcement here. Virginia is able to take these steps as a result of increasing vaccination rates, dramatically declining COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and statewide test positivity rate, and revised federal guidelines.

    However, the state of emergency in Virginia will remain in place at least through June 30 to provide flexibility for local government and support ongoing COVID-19 vaccination efforts. Governor Northam will take executive action to ensure individuals have the option to wear masks up to and after that date. Masks will continue to be required in K-12 public schools, given low rates of vaccination among children. You can find all current COVID information as it relates to the State of Virginia here.

    As a critical business, Campbell Insurance has remained open, albeit remotely, throughout the pandemic serving as a trusted advisor to our clients. From the beginning of this global health challenge and out of an abundance of caution, we encouraged our team members to work from home. Although it was challenging at first, our team adapted and worked tirelessly to be responsive to each client’s needs. Thankfully, there have been no service disruptions to our clients. We are extremely grateful for the patience everyone has shown.

    Now for some really good news: the Campbell team will be returning to our offices starting July X, 2021! The health and safety of our team and our clients remains our top priority. The majority of our team have chosen to be vaccinated. We will continue to practice aggressive hygiene practices at all three locations, and our team members and guests may choose to continuing wearing masks. And while we are welcoming clients to our offices and are happy to meet with you at your home, office or jobsite, we will continue to offer the convenience of video conferencing via services like Zoom as well as meet by phone. We respect your personal preference!
