“We need to do the things we need to do
to protect each other,” Dr. Marsh said. “Stay in our homes, don't
congregate, wash your hands thoroughly – 20 seconds, soap and water,
or using hand sanitize, between your fingers, around your wrists, sing
Happy Birthday twice, sing the ABCs, sing Country Roads –
don't put your hands around your face.
“To save lives, to help save our healthcare workers, to save our systems
of healthcare that we rely on, not only for the coronavirus, but for
heart attacks, strokes and other treatments – West Virginia –
now is the time,” Dr. Marsh continued. “It’s our time to be West
Virginia strong. I’m very proud to be a citizen of this state and a
citizen that's led by Governor Jim Justice. It's our time.”
Gov. Justice also asked all citizens who have the ability to stay home to
make doing so a top priority.
“All of us are really really worried, where’s our next paycheck going to
come from? How are we going to sustain ourselves? I would tell you that
the government, in every way, is stepping up as a nation and a state.
You’ll be made as whole as you can possibly be made.”
