WV DHHR Updates Color Map: Local Sports Good To Go

August 30th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources has released the updated color coded map which indicates local high schools will be able to begin, or continue, sports contests in the coming week.

Locally, Mineral and Hardy Counties are coded yellow, which does not prohibit competition, but bears watching.   Should cases spike and the status change to orange by next Saturday evening, practice could continue, but games would be postponed.

The colors are based on a seven day rolling average of cases for larger counties, and a 14 day rolling average for smaller counties.   Generally speaking, if a county remains under an average daily count of ten new cases, teams can continue to play.
