Virginia's State Corporation Commission approved the new area code 948 in February this year. It is a Numbering Plan Area overlay which will serve the same geographic area currently covered by NPA 757, namely the eastern and south eastern parts of the state, with cities and towns such as Chesapeake, Hampton, Norfolk or Virginia Beach. All local calls in this area will mandatorily be dialed using 10 digits beginning on September 11, 2021.
See official NANPA announcement for more info and map of the new overlay complex 757/948 (PDF document).
