The COVID-19 Data
Review Panel, responsible for verifying the data utilized in the West Virginia Department of Education Saturday
Education Map, today reviewed data from a public health perspective to
determine the accuracy and reliability of the data to ensure they are a true
indication of what’s occurring among counties across West Virginia.
As a result of today’s review, the panel approved
Boone County: Moved from gold to
yellow using the percent positivity rate which is less than 4% over 7-days due
to data validation and removing duplicate cases.
Cabell County: Moved from orange to gold as the percent positivity
is less than 5% over a 7-day period due to data validation and updating five
cases with the correct county of residence.
Logan County: Moved from orange to yellow using the percent
positivity rate which is less than 4% over 7-days due to data validation and
updating 14 cases with the correct county of residence.

is greater than 5% over 7-days due to four probable cases updated to confirmed
status and one case added during the time period.
