BREAKING: Justice Expands Limitations to Morgantown, Other Areas

April 4th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced Saturday night at 9:45 p.m. that he has signed an Executive Order for Monongalia, Harrison, and Kanawha counties as COVID-19 continues to spread. This Executive Order expands the order issued last evening for Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties.



The Executive Order will be available as a PDF tomorrow after it is filed with the West Virginia Secretary of State’s office. 



“Right now, 38% of the COVID-19 positive cases in West Virginia are in these three counties,” Gov. Justice said. “If you add in Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties, its 62% of all the positive cases in our state.



“I have been monitoring this situation all day and decided to take this action tonight after my medical experts advised me that these counties are the next areas where community clusters may soon develop. The additional measures I took yesterday for the Eastern Panhandle need to be applied to these counties as well. Today, we had reports of crowds at stores with the nice spring weather, but to stop the spread of COVID-19 we MUST stay at home as much as possible and we MUST remember to socially distance when we go out for necessities. The stay-at-home order and the guidelines by our medical experts need to be taken very seriously at this time.

    In Preston co there is a camp ground called Big Bear that is open last weekend a few hundred people were there most from out of state ,This action puts many people at risk.The camp grounds responds is “we told the campers they have to stay on their camp site” how can this be Please shut down this camp site now .This is a small town and we are working very hard to be safe and this type of action is not helping .A stay at home order means stay at home not stay at home or go to you camp site and enjoy.
