Delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR. 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. Such is the case of Taylor County in this report.

The DHHR’s County Alert System is currently showing no counties in red.

The map shows Wetzel, Calhoun, Putnam, Lincoln, Logan, Boone, Nicholas, Braxton, Randolph, Hampshire, Morgan, and Berkeley County all in orange.

11 counties are shown in gold – Marshall, Tyler, Pleasants, Marion, Wirt, Jackson, Clay, Wayne, Mingo, Raleigh, and Mercer County.
