Thursday Morning Notes

Background Checks on Gun Sales — “A Virginia judge has ruled that most of the state’s new law requiring background checks on all gun sales does not violate constitutional rights, except for a wrinkle that effectively bans people between the ages of 18 and 21 from buying handguns.” [Inside NoVa]

Free COVID-19 Testing in Herndon — The Fairfax County Health Department is offering free testing on Thursday, July 23 at Holly Cross Lutheran Church in Herndon from 2-8 p.m. Various time slots are available. No doctor referral is needed and identification is not necessary. [Fairfax County Health Department]

Slower Sales for Scout & Molly’s in Reston — “Like many small business owners, Jane Abraham has had to make some hard decisions this year due to the coronavirus pandemic just to try and keep her business afloat. Abraham and her daughter, Betsy, own and operate two Scout & Molly’s dress franchises, one at Reston Town Center and the other at Ballston Quarter in Arlington. When Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam ordered all non-essential businesses to close in March, Abraham was forced to lay off her four employees.” [Reston Patch]
