“Today is another difficult day as West Virginia families cope with the loss of loved ones,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “Being fully vaccinated and boosted is the most effective way to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, or death from COVID-19.”
Please note that from June 6-20, 2022, the National Center for Health Statistics will be unable to certify deaths due to a system update affecting all 50 states. This will impact West Virginia's ability to report COVID-19 deaths. The Bureau for Public Health’s Office of Epidemiology and Prevention Services will continue to certify and report deaths using the death reconciliation process; however, there may be a dramatic decrease in deaths reported during this time period.
