‘West Virginia Strong: The Comeback’
Governor Justice on April 27 released his plan to allow West Virginia businesses to begin reopening. The plan, called “West Virginia Strong: The Comeback,” says residents should continue practicing social distancing and wearing face masks in public to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus. However, businesses will be allowed to reopen when West Virginia can maintain statewide cumulative positive COVID-19 test results below 3% for three days in a row. Read the plan here.

Governor advises West Virginians to stay home
Gov. Jim Justice on Saturday, March 21, urged West Virginians to take all necessary precautions to help slow the spread of COVID-19, including staying home as much as possible. “We might be able to prevent us from getting to a point where we’ve got to shut down the entire state, but to do that we’ve got to move and we’ve got to move stronger than we already are right now,” he said. “Right now, you’ve got to really bear down and buckle up.” Click here to watch a replay of the governor’s speech.
