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. 

Please note the new section of the Dashboard Overview page showing the total number of vaccines received and administered. This information will be updated along with the daily dashboard update. Please visit the dashboard located at www.coronavirus.wv.gov for more information.
