The 2021 General Assembly session is expected to wrap up in the next couple of days with the majority of the work to be completed today. All of the remaining bills are in conference which means three legislators from the Senate and three legislators from the House are appointed for each bill to confer on the final details of them, reach agreement, and then present to the entire Senate and House for a vote. A final budget is nearly complete with a full vote coming later today.
Last week I mentioned the Commonwealth was taking a pause in new registrations over the past weekend in order to stand up a statewide central registry and migrate the data from local health districts. The new registry and tools were rolled out Tuesday, February 16. If you already pre-registered with the local health district, you do not need to do anything as your registration was transferred over during the pause.
A quick update regarding the registration process from the Virginia Department of Health can be found below.
