Here are some of the most significant recent developments as the region responds to the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, which causes the disease covid-19:
• Two Virginia Republican lawmakers are challenging Gov. Ralph Northam (D) in court over his stay-at-home order with a lawsuit filed Tuesday on behalf of a Gold’s Gym group.
• The District and Maryland on Wednesday reported 61 covid-19 fatalities, bringing the regional death toll to 1,159 with Virginia yet to release new data.
• As the coronavirus outbreak hits the D.C. region, the Virginia General Assembly convened Wednesday to finish its business. The House of Delegates was set to meet under a canopy outside the Capitol, and the Senate convened 2½ miles away in a cavernous room at a science museum.
