Jefferson County, WV Health Department Services

During yesterday’s press briefing, Governor Jim Justice unveiled his plan for gradually re-opening businesses over the next few weeks. The plan is now available to view or download here: https://governor.wv.gov/Pages/The-Comeback.aspx

This is a flexible plan that can be slowed down or paused if cases of COVID-19 begin increasing again. More detailed guidance for different types of businesses will be available in the near future. For now, West Virginians should continue to practice physical distancing, wear cloth face coverings in public where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, follow the statewide Stay at Home Order until it is lifted, and continue to telework when possible.

Thank you all for your patience, cooperation, and community spirit. Stay strong, Jefferson County – we will get through this together!
