WV state superintendent recommends canceling extracurricular actiivities

West Virginia

CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia State Superintendent Clayton Burch says he “strongly recommends” all school extracurricular activities be canceled starting Monday, March 16. He says the decision comes upon the guidance of West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice and state medical officials due to concerns over the coronavirus.

Burch says this does not include student care programs like 21st Century Learning & child nutrition programs.

At this time, there are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in West Virginia. Earlier this month, Justice and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced an information hotline to address public and medical provider questions and concerns regarding the coronavirus. Anyone with questions can call 24/7, toll-free, at 1-800-887-4304.
