Suspension Lifted On BCHD Services

A suspension has been lifted on services offered by the Boone County Health Department.

County health department officials confirmed that information Tuesday evening.


The suspension in late February followed an investigation by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. At the time, state health officials said the county health department didn’t have written policies or procedures for infection prevention, hand hygiene or environmental cleaning.


The Boone County Board of Health had also failed to hold regularly scheduled meetings and in the report, officials were told the medical director had not been to the facility “since March.”
