24, 2020, Gov. Jim Justice announced that the West Virginia Department of Health and Human
Resources (DHHR), the agency in charge of reporting the number of
COVID-19 cases, will transition from providing twice-daily updates to one
report every 24 hours.
“It’s being done across the nation and it
seems that it’s more efficient that way because the numbers change constantly,”
Gov. Justice said. “It’s more efficient to see how we’re doing over a 24-hour
reporting period instead.”
reporting will begin with the 10:00 a.m. report tomorrow, August 1, 2020.
