Message from Buddy Rizer on Loudoun Is Ready: “We are marking an important milestone in our recovery from COVID-19, as we enter into the next phase of the Virginia Governor’s plan to re-open the economy.

“But opening our doors is only the first step.

“We also need to let consumers know that we are taking their health and safety seriously, so they have the confidence to return to their normal activities.

“That’s why we have created Loudoun Is Ready with the Loudoun Chamber and Visit Loudoun. It’s easy and free to participate.

“Just take the pledge at, and we’ll provide you with marketing opportunities and materials to show your customers that you are ready to welcome them back.

“Loudoun is ready. We are ready. I am ready. Are you ready?”
