Per the Governor’s order, beaches – including our Yorktown Beach – remain closed. While many localities allow the beaches to be used for exercise and fishing, Yorktown Beach’s small size makes the required social distancing difficult, if not impossible.
As Virginia enters the first full week in Phase One of re-opening the state, Riverwalk Landing Piers continue to welcome transient and recreational boaters looking to dock and shop, pick up to-go food orders, and exercise at the waterfront. The Yorktown Fishing Pier is also open but remains limited to no more than 10 people at a time with at least six feet of physical distance.
Many Riverwalk Landing businesses are also slowly beginning to unlock their doors as well - each with enhanced health and safety measures for employees and customers. Lodging facilities are once again taking reservations. In addition to new takeout and patio dining options for restaurants, outdoor recreation rentals have begun as well, including paddle board, bicycle, and kayak rentals. The Riverwalk is also open to walking, bicycling, and jogging, as long as visitors maintain appropriate space between themselves and others.
York County Public Library is in the process of implementing Phase One of our reopening plan. Book drops are open at the Tabb and Yorktown Libraries from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. Returned items will be quarantined for three days and will be removed from your account on the fourth day after drop off. No fines will be assessed. Please maintain social distancing when returning items to the book drop.
On Monday, June 1 the Library will offer curbside pick-up of books, DVDs, and other material available for checkout at the Tabb library from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Patrons can request items via our online catalog https://york.ent.sirsi.net and we will notify you when they are ready for pickup. When you arrive at the Tabb library turn right as soon as you enter the parking lot. Follow the path of orange barrels/cones, and pull into one of the six available spaces marked for curbside service. Follow the directions on the sign indicating which phone number to call as well as what space number you are in.
Even though the library buildings are still closed, our digital collection and research resources are always available online. If you need help accessing these resources, ask us online or call the Tabb Library, 757-890-5100, or Yorktown Library, 757-890-3377.

The summer edition of York County’s quarterly newsletter is now available exclusively online. The newsletter, usually mailed quarterly to all homes in York County, was instead produced as an online publication due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Readers will find inside the publication their familiar favorites: School Division, Special Events such as Market Days and Concerts, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Recycling Update, and so much more!
The health crisis, along with the severity of the financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, have forced the County to continue making operational reductions now and into the next fiscal year. This includes the difficult decision to cancel the July 4th fireworks and parade. While public restrictions on large gatherings may very well be relaxed before July 4, financial commitments needed for these events must be made far in advance. The savings to the County budget is very important and necessary at this time.
