Hot Topic
Pest Control has not been restricted in Virginia and has been declared an “Essential Service” in states surrounding Virginia.

Click here to read the full guidance document about each state's consideration of pest control services.
Below is an brief explanation for Virginia, followed by  links for letters that can be carried by technicians in Virginia and surrounding states.
In Virginia, pursuant to Gov. Northam's Executive Order 55 2.a on March 30, 2020, all public and private in-person gatherings of more than ten individuals are prohibited. This includes parties, celebrations, religious, or other social events, whether they occur indoor or outdoor. This restriction does not apply: a. To the operation of businesses not required to close to the public under Executive Order 53
Remember: You are not required to continue operations, but if you do you have the responsibility to follow CDC Guidelines on social distancing and disinfection of common surfaces, and in Virginia, you may not have a gathering of more than 10 people.
This information is normally preserved for members of VPMA, but during this pandemic that efffects the entire Industry VPMA is making information available to all PMPs. As a member based organization we rely on our members to fund the efforts of VPMA. If you are not a member, please consider joining.
