Justice Warns Younger WV Residents Against COVID Complacency

April 22nd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Governor Jim Justice and state health officials are urging West Virginians to get tested for COVID-19 if they start feeling ill, have been exposed to the virus or just want reassurance they haven’t been exposed. After announcing the state has reached 2,800 deaths in connection to COVID-19, the governor said people getting tested allows health officials to not only prevent further spread but catch and treat the disease early, potentially saving more lives. Justice also continued encouraging younger West Virginians to get vaccinated against the virus, as a majority of spread in recent weeks was among those age groups.
