“Anybody can look at this and see that our numbers are bumping up,” Gov. Justice said. “Unfortunately, I don’t think this thing is just going to miraculously evaporate forever overnight. We have got to find a way to live with this.
“It can be managed,” Gov. Justice continued. “The way to manage it is to make sure you’re up-to-date on your vaccinations and your booster shots. You have to stay on top of your game. Use our Vaccine Calculator.”
