HAMPTON ROADS — Congresswoman Elaine Luria has announced that she will be hosting a virtual town hall on May 26 regarding the federal response to COVID-19 and vaccine distribution.

The congresswoman will be joined by Dr. Parham Jaberi, Virginia Department of Health’s (VDH) chief deputy commissioner and current acting health director for Virginia Beach and Norfolk. Additionally, it will be moderated by Rev. Dr. Veronica Coleman, New Jerusalem Ministries and past president of the Virginia Beach Interdenominational Ministers Conference.

“Since the passage of the American Rescue Plan, Virginia has seen an encouraging decrease in the rate of COVID-19 cases, a reduction in health care costs for many residents, and a steady economic recovery,” said Rep. Luria. “I’m looking forward to hearing directly from constituents about their concerns and how we can more effectively vaccinate Coastal Virginia.”

The town hall will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, May 26 from 6:30-7:45 p.m. It is open for all of Hampton Roads’ residents. However, attendees are required to register for a free e-ticket prior to attendance. To register, click here.
