Rich­mond schools are closed, as are those in Ch­ester­field, Hanover and Hen­rico coun­ties, through mid-April. Northam has or­dered schools across the state shut down un­til at least March 27, and state ed­u­ca­tion lead­ers are ask­ing the fed­eral gov­ern­ment for a waiver from Stan­dards of Learn­ing test­ing.

The state Board of Ed­u­ca­tion is sched­uled to hold a meet­ing via phone at 1 p.m. Fri­day as the body weighs re­vis­ing grad­u­a­tion re­quire­ments for se­niors, among other things.

An ABC store near Vir­ginia Com­mon­wealth Univer­sity’s main cam­pus is closed af­ter the room­mate of an em­ployee tested pos­i­tive for COVID-19.

The Vir­ginia Al­co­holic Bev­er­age Con­trol Au­thor­ity an­nounced Thurs­day that its store at 1217 W. Broad St. will be closed for at least two weeks.

No ABC em­ploy­ees have tested pos­i­tive for the coro­n­avirus, ac­cord­ing to the state agency, but all the Broad Street store em­ploy­ees have been asked to self­quar­an­tine for two weeks. The story has 11 work­ers.
