The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission is closely monitoring the quickly evolving changes surrounding COVID-19.

In response to the latest information, all in-person Commission hearings and mediations have been cancelled through March 31st.

The Commission remains open for all other business and therefore there is no change at this time in policy or procedure with regard to timely filing, statutes of limitation, or other statutory or rule based time limitations.

All parties affected will be contacted by the Commission as soon as possible to reschedule.
