Virginia’s hotel workers have been moved up the list for covid-19 vaccination eligibility. Hotel workers are now in Phase 1c for vaccine eligibility. The list will soon be updated to include Traveler Accommodations (including hotel workers) under the Housing and Construction category. Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association has been fighting to have hotel workers moved up the vaccine priority list. Some localities in Virginia have already begun the shift from Phase 1b to Phase 1c. All localities should move onto Phase 1c within a few weeks.
