As case surveillance continues at the local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state border to be tested.
As part of Gov. Jim Justice’s initiative to increase testing opportunities for minorities and other vulnerable populations, the Governor’s Office, DHHR, the Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs and the WV National Guard offered free testing in Berkeley, Jefferson, Kanawha, Mineral and Morgan counties, with support from local health departments and community partners.
The two-day testing resulted in 698 individuals tested in Berkeley County; 721 in Jefferson County; 768 in Kanawha County; 514 in Mineral County; and 353 in Morgan County. Please note these are considered preliminary numbers.
