Stay at Home Order
To further combat the spread of COVID-19 in West Virginia, Gov. Jim Justice issued a “Stay At Home” order Tuesday, March 24, directing all West Virginia residents to stay at home and limit movements outside of their homes beyond essential needs.
The order will remain in effect until terminated by subsequent executive order.
