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 tested. Such is the case
of Roane County in this report.
Please visit the dashboard located at www.coronavirus.wv.gov for more information.
