Justice Asks West Virginians To Be Cautious This Holiday Season


Gov. Jim Justice again urged West Virginians to be cautious about the coronavirus as numbers continue to escalate just prior to traditional Thanksgiving gatherings.


Justice said he does not want to order more shutdowns, as he did in the spring. But he suggested his administration may consider targeted efforts in counties with heightened virus numbers.


That could mean “that we take a pinpoint selection, a specific county, and we may have to look at specific modifications in a specific county to try to slow this thing down.”


Justice urged West Virginians to get a coronavirus test prior to Thanksgiving, no matter their plans.
