"g. The City of Virginia Beach, for a minimum-security work release center that will be planned as a multi-use facility.  In addition to serving as a work release center, this facility would be available to serve as a secure and isolated regional quarantine facility for treatment of infected persons, when requested by the Governor in the event of a pandemic or similar medical emergency."
