West Virginia

CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia Governor Jim Justice is scheduled to give a briefing on COVID-19 in the Mountain State at approximately 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

During Monday’s briefing, the governor said roughly 9% of West Virginians have been tested for the virus.
