|Dr. Clay Marsh, COVID-19 Czar for the state, encouraged West Virginians to continue efforts to limit the spread of the virus. He added that staying physically separated and staying at home will have its greatest effect in West Virginia during the next eight to 14 days.|
Gov. Justice also announced that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, foster parents are still greatly needed throughout West Virginia. With over 7,000 youth in foster care in West Virginia, it is imperative that the state continue to recruit and certify families to meet this need.
The majority of foster care agencies in West Virginia are able to offer online services, including interactive training, applications, interviews and other important pieces of the certification process.
