Coronavirus testing in West Virginia

RANDOLPH COUNTY, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia Governor Jim Justice says there are now 116 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among inmates at Huttonsville Correctional Center. No additional staff have received positive test results.

Due to the outbreak, free testing will be available for the Randolph County community. The testing events will be tomorrow, Saturday, May 30, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Davis Medical Center in Elkins
  • Valley Healthcare in Mill Creek

The governor encourages anyone who is showing symptoms or who just wants to be tested as a precaution to participate in the free testing events.

“If you’re feeling the least bit bad or the least bit anxious, or whatever it may be. If you think you should be tested, please come out and take advantage of that,” Justice says. “It won’t cost you a dime. It’s painless, and it takes every bit of ten seconds to do it. I encourage anybody that has any concerns whatsoever to come and get tested. It’s just the right thing to do.”
