More than 1.9 million cases of the coronavirus have been reported across the country and more than 112,000 Americans have died as a result.

Here in West Virginia, we’ve lost 86 of our citizens, with more than 2,000 cases reported. That it is why our government officials are working diligently to do everything they can to flatten the curve, open the state up and decrease the spread of the disease among our fellow West Virginians. As we work to confront the worst public health crisis in our lifetime, it is important that we prioritize protecting our most vulnerable citizens, especially our children.
