Daily Health Map Has Mineral County In Higher Risk

November 2nd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Not to be confused with the school map, the daily COVID-19 map now has Mineral County in the orange classification, meaning there is significant spread of the disease, while Hampshire County is now gold, one step below. It does not change the overall Yellow Status that schools in both counties are operating under this week.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of 10:00 a.m., November 2, 2020, there have been 792,475 total confirmatory laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 25,235 total cases and 458 deaths.

DHHR has confirmed the death of a 71-year old female from Grant County. “We are deeply saddened by this news, a loss to both the family and our state,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary.

Please note that delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR. As case surveillance continues at the local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state border to be testedSuch is the case of Greenbrier and Roane counties in this report.
