Friday, May 8: Gov. Justice announces date for limited reopening of Hatfield-McCoy Trail System

 

 

 

HATFIELD-MCCOY TRAILS REOPENING
On Friday, Gov. Justice announced that as part of his statewide reopening plan, West Virginia Strong – The Comeback, the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System will be permitted to open, with limitations, on Thursday, May 21, 2020.

“I’ve gotten an awful lot of feedback from a lot of different people, from our tourism people, to medical experts, to people from other states,” Gov. Justice said. “We’ve weighed a lot of different factors.

“We know how important the Hatfield-McCoy Trails to us, economically, in the southern part of the state,” Gov. Justice continued. “I am happy about reopening the trails but I am also concerned. There’s going to be limitations and we’re going to enforce the limitations as best as we possibly can.”

All public buildings and public restrooms along the trail system will remain closed until further notice.

The trails themselves will be open for riding, provided that riders follow the following safety guidelines: 

  • PPE: Riders are encouraged to wear face masks or face shields while stopped. All riders, by law, must wear a helmet while riding.
  • Self screening: Riders are encouraged to self screen for COVID-19 symptoms by CDC guidelines.
  • Temperature checks: Riders are encouraged to take their temperature prior to arriving at the trails. If their temperature measures over 100 degrees, the riders are not permitted to enter the trails.
  • Sick rider: Any rider or visitor who exhibits COVID-19 symptoms must leave the trails immediately and seek medical care and/or COVID-19 testing, per CDC guidelines.
  • Limit groups: Riders are prohibited from congregating on the trails.
  • Physical distancing: Practice proper social distancing, including a minimum of six feet of distance where practical and safe to do so.
  • Shared vehicles: Riders are discouraged from sharing a UTV, ATV, or off-road dirt bike with anyone outside their immediate group or party.
  • Shared equipment: Riders are discouraged from sharing safety equipment or masks.

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER FILED FOR UPCOMING WEEK 3 REOPENINGS
On Friday, Gov. Justice officially signed and filed the Executive Order that will allow businesses in the “Week 3” phase of the Governor’s reopening plan to resume operations if they so choose.

Businesses that are part of the Week 3 reopenings include drive-in movie theaters and wellness centers operated by or with West Virginia Licensed Health Care providers.
 

 

 

 

“THE COMEBACK” SCHEDULE REMINDER
Also on Friday, the Governor offered a reminder about the current reopening schedule for The Comeback plan: 

  • Week 1 – Thursday, April 30 (underway)

  • Week 3 – Monday, May 11
  • Week 4 – Monday, May 18
  • Week 5 – Monday, May 25
  • Week 6 – Monday, June 1

This schedule may be altered if changes to the timeline are deemed necessary for the safety of West Virginians.

The Governor also provided a reminder that on this coming Monday, May 11, businesses included in the Week 4 phase of reopenings will be announced so they have adequate time to prepare to resume operations while following all additional guidelines.

Gov. Justice’s Safer At Home order also remains in effect at this time.

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE DISCUSSES REOPENING PLAN IN NATIONAL TV INTERVIEW
Gov. Justice took part in another national interview on the Fox Business program Cavuto: Coast to Coast on Friday to discuss West Virginia's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the segment, the Governor praised his fellow West Virginians for doing what has needed to be done to protect their neighbors and keep transmission numbers as low as possible.

"We've done a lot of the right things," Gov. Justice said. "We've had a lot of great experts that have weighed in and the people of West Virginia have done the right stuff."

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE TAKES TO NATIONAL AIRWAVES TO TELL WEST VIRGINIA'S STORY
Also Friday, Gov. Justice participated in a national radio interview on Fox News Radio's The Brian Kilmeade Show to continue discussing West Virginia's progress in handling COVID-19.

"We're going to continue looking at our numbers," Gov. Justice said. "We have witnessed a miracle in West Virginia.

"You look at West Virginia...it is the highest-risk state and we are sitting right in the middle of the hottest spot in the country," Gov. Justice continued. "But we have pitched unbelievable numbers.

"We have been on top of it. We were the first in the nation to test all our nursing homes, now we're the first in the nation to test all of our assisted living facilities."

 

 

 

COVID-19 DATA UPDATE
Once again, Gov. Justice provided an overview of statewide data on COVID-19, highlighting that West Virginia’s growth rate of positive tests dropped to 1.8 percent. 

The Governor also pointed out that the state cumulative rate of positive tests decreased, yet again, to 2.20 percent – the state’s lowest figure in that category since before the pandemic arrived in West Virginia.

CITY AND COUNTY GUIDANCE
Additionally, the Governor announced that he hopes to be able to provide guidance for cities and counties to use to apply for funding from the CARES Act by next Friday.

“We have been in constant communication with all of our cities and counties and the associations that represent them, “I know they need our help.” Gov. Justice said, pointing out that more clarity may become available once the United States House of Representatives returns to session.

 

 

 

WEST VIRGINIANS URGED TO PARTICIPATE IN CENSUS
Once again, Gov. Justice asked all West Virginians to participate in the 2020 United States Census.

“Every day, I encourage you more and more and more about the Census, to make sure everybody’s counted” Gov. Justice said. “That's a pretty simple thing to get more dollars to the state of West Virginia.”

Every West Virginian who does not respond to the Census represents a loss of $20,000 in federal funds over the next ten years for the state and its local communities. The funds can go toward things like healthcare, education, infrastructure, school lunch programs, and more.

Thursday, May 7: Gov. Justice announces that West Virginia is first state in nation to begin testing all assisted living facility residents and staff for COVID-19

 

 

 

WEST VIRGINIA LEADING NATION IN ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY TESTING
On Thursday, Gov. Justice announced that an effort to test all residents and staff members at every assisted living facility in West Virginia is underway.

The action came after the Governor’s Executive Order on Wednesday made West Virginia the first state in the nation to require all-inclusive assisted living facility testing statewide.

“I love it when I’m able to report to you over and over that West Virginia is the first in something,” Gov. Justice said. “We are setting a national example. People are paying attention to West Virginia and the fruits will be numerous as we go forward.”

Last month, at the direction of Gov. Justice, West Virginia became the first state in the nation to require COVID-19 testing for all nursing home residents and staff statewide.

In the time since, several other states have begun to follow suit.

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE RECOGNIZES NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
Also on Thursday, Gov. Justice observed the 2020 National Day of Prayer, asking all West Virginians to join him and First Lady Cathy Justice in praying for the safety of frontline workers and for the health and well-being of all West Virginians during this time.

“If there is any day on the planet that we all need to gather and say prayers and try to ask the good Lord above to intervene, it’s today,” Gov. Justice said. “He’s in control, He’s watching after us, and He has especially watched after West Virginia. So we’ve just got to continue to ask and send up our prayers. So please join Cathy and I in prayer on this incredible day.

 

 

 

WEST VIRGINIA NATIONAL GUARD PROVIDES PPE TRAINING TO DIVISION OF HIGHWAYS
During Thursday's press conference, Maj. Gen. James Hoyer, Adjutant General of the West Virginia National Guard (WVNG), highlighted a training session between the WVNG and the West Virginia Division of Highways that took place on Wednesday to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) training at their facility.

"This partnership is exceptionally important so that all West Virginia state agencies workers can return feeling confident that their workplace has implemented safeguards and best practices to ensure a safe workplace," Hoyer said. "At the Governor's direction, we will work with all agencies in state government to prepare them for reopening in the safest manner possible."

Hoyer also added that during the month of May, West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (WVVOAD), Catholic Charities West Virginia, and West Virginia Council of Churches are sponsoring a food drive to support COVID-19 relief efforts. These organizations are urging all West Virginians that can, to donate canned and dry goods during this month. Anyone who is interested in donating can visit wvvoad.org or call 211 for a list of local food pantries.

UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS UPDATE
WorkForce West Virginia Acting Commissioner Scott Adkins provided an update on efforts to support West Virginians during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of Wednesday, West Virginians who have exhausted their regular unemployment benefits are able to apply for Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation – a 13-week extension on unemployment benefits provided by the federal CARES Act.

The additional weeks of benefits are available to individuals who have previously collected state and federal unemployment compensation but have exhausted those benefits.

Applicants may apply for the extension at WorkForceWV.org.

Adkins also provided a reminder that WorkForce West Virginia would be beginning to pay Pandemic Unemployment Assistance benefits on Friday, May 8.

These benefits are for individuals who normally aren't eligible for regular unemployment compensation or extended benefits under state or federal law like self-employed workers.

Additional unemployment claims continue to be processed as rapidly as possible.

 

 

 

Wednesday, May 6: Gov. Justice orders testing at all daycares, assisted living facilities, and residential care communities statewide

 

 

 

DAYCARE, ASSISTED LIVING, RESIDENTIAL CARE TESTING
On Wednesday, Gov. Justice announced that he has issued an Executive Order, directing the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources and the West Virginia National Guard to test all daycare employees, as well as all residents and staff members at assisted living facilities and residential care communities throughout the state for COVID-19.

The Governor has directed that this effort begin immediately to provide more aggressive support to these communities.

“It is our hope, in every way, we can have all of our daycares up and open,” Gov. Justice said. “We need them to take care of our children as our workers go back to work. But we absolutely cannot risk anything to our children or anything our children maybe could take back to their families.

“We knew, as soon as we finished testing our nursing homes, we would go to mandatory testing of our assisted living facilities and our residential care communities,” Gov. Justice continued. “We absolutely need to do everything in our power to keep our most vulnerable populations as safe as possible.”

Last month, at the direction of Gov. Justice, West Virginia became the first state in the nation to require COVID-19 testing for all nursing home residents and staff statewide. In the time since, other states have begun to follow suit.

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE, DHHR ANNOUNCE TARGETED TESTING IN AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITIES
Also Wednesday, Gov. Justice announced that he has directed targeted testing to begin in several African American communities in West Virginia.

This enhanced testing will be a main focus of the newly-established COVID-19 Advisory Commission on African American Disparities – a task force administered by the WV DHHR with the mission of investigating the effect of COVID-19 on African American communities across the state.

“We are looking at these communities and doing the prudent work that will enable us to ensure that we won’t have critical problems in those communities as well,” Gov. Justice said.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), while the effects of COVID-19 on the health of racial and ethnic minority groups is still emerging, current data suggest a disproportionate burden of illness and death among racial and ethnic minority groups.

DHHR officials have been compiling and analyzing data on the effect of COVID-19 in African American communities for the past several weeks and have established specific areas in the state to increase testing, including Berkeley, Jefferson, Marion, Monongalia, and Raleigh counties. Additional counties or areas may be added in the future.

The DHHR plans to utilize the West Virginia National Guard’s mobile testing and drive-thru testing capabilities to enhance testing in these areas.

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE HONORS NURSES
On Wednesday, Gov. Justice announced that he signed a proclamation, officially declaring May 6, 2020 as Nurses Day in West Virginia in honor of the hard work, bravery, commitment, and caring hearts of all nurses displayed across the state and the nation during this pandemic.

“Do you have any idea what these great people have brought to us and the lives that they’ve saved and the dangers they’ve put themselves in?” Gov. Justice said. “Do you know how tough it is to come to work and know that you’re dealing with this killing virus every day? Can you imagine the bravery that it takes to be one of these nurses every day?

“So, as you see them, please appreciate them and please thank them. We’re signing this proclamation today and all it’s just one more level of gratitude for all the great work these heroes have done.”

 

 

 

GOVERNOR CELEBRATES SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS
Also on Wednesday, the Governor signed a proclamation, officially declaring May 6, 2020 as Interpreter Appreciation Day in West Virginia and taking time to thank the two sign language interpreters who have been a part of the Governor's daily media briefings throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There’s just so many things that we’re very thankful for,” Gov. Justice said “We thank all of those who are helping us in every way.”

 

 

 

WEST VIRGINIA NATIONAL GUARD SUPPORTS DELIVERY OF MEALS TO 198 FAMILIES
During his remarks Wednesday, Maj. Gen. James Hoyer, adjutant general of the West Virginia National Guard, reported that WVNG personnel supported a Huntington food bank’s operation of a “mobile food bank” – delivering meals to 198 families across the region.

The WVNG announced that they, along with West Virginia Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD), Mountaineer Food Bank, Facing Hunger Food Bank, and the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (WVDHSEM), have joined forces to establish a regional food distribution center in the Greater Kanawha Valley as the need for supplemental and emergency food services continues to grow across the Mountain State during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The new distribution center, located at the WVNG Rock Branch facility in Poca, West Virginia, allows the multiple organizations to work together in a whole-of-government approach to provide additional food distribution capacity supporting the shared mission to assist West Virginia families and individuals that face food insecurity.

 

 

 

NEW UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AVAILABLE
Gov. Justice announced that West Virginians who have exhausted their regular unemployment benefits are eligible and now able to apply for Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation – a 13-week extension on unemployment benefits provided by the federal CARES Act.

The additional weeks of benefits are available to individuals who have previously collected state and federal unemployment compensation but have exhausted those benefits.

Applicants may apply for the extension at WorkForceWV.org.

GOV. JUSTICE PROVIDES UPDATE ON COVID-19 TESTING DATA
On Tuesday, Gov. Justice announced that the number of people who have recovered from COVID-19 in West Virginia now significantly exceeds the number of active cases in the state.

View the latest COVID-19 data at Coronavirus.wv.gov

“We want the number of recovered cases to keep getting significantly higher and it is trending higher every day,” Gov. Justice said. “It’s really good stuff.”

Gov. Justice also highlighted that while West Virginia has tested a higher rate of its population than all of its surrounding states as well as the national average, West Virginia has experienced a lower rate of positive tests than all of its surrounding states as well as the national average.

“We should be unbelievably proud of these numbers,” Gov. Justice said. “You – our great West Virginians – have done incredible work. But we need to keep it up.”

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE EXTENDS FREE FISHING DAYS
Gov. Justice has announced that West Virginia residents can enjoy another month of free fishing. 

The requirement to possess a fishing license to fish in state-regulated waters has been waived for state residents through May 31st. 

Anglers are asked to continue practicing safe social distancing measures. 

 

 

 

NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK CELEBRATED
Gov. Justice also acknowledged this week as National Teacher Appreciation Week.

“From my office and myself, and on behalf of all of those wonderful kids out there, we want to wish out our love and thanks to all of our great teachers that have done great work for us over the years,” Gov. Justice said. “We hate that you’re not in the classroom, but we know that you’re still trying to help our kids in every way with all the work that you’re still doing online.

“Thank you for the love that you’ve given our kids and the great work that you’ve done over and over.”

 

 

 

CORONAVIRUS CZAR PROVIDES UPDATE
West Virginia Coronavirus Czar Dr. Clay Marsh also made remarks Tuesday, explaining West Virginia’s cautious approach toward reopening the state and its economy.

“This week we have reduced the aggressiveness of some of the openings,” Dr. Marsh said. “We’re going to let things play out for a week or so. Certainly opening up health and rehab facilities supervised by health professionals is important...but we know it takes about 10 days to two weeks to see the initial impacts of some of the reopenings, the coming back together, and then it takes about two cycles of that to see the full extent.

“So we want to make sure we are giving enough time to see what is the real effect from a health and well-being standpoint for the first part of what we’re doing – still continuing to open up and to allow businesses to start to reopen the economy – but we want to make sure, with some of the bigger businesses, we give them the right guidance and support.”

 

 

 

DEPT. OF EDUCATION CONTINUES TO ACCEPT ORGANIZATION PARTNERS TO FEED KIDS THROUGH THE SUMMER
The West Virginia Department of Education is continuing to seek partnerships with organizations across the state to help feed children during the summer months. Just as during the COVID-19 pandemic, when school is out during the summer months, community programs and organizations are vital to ensuring children in West Virginia are still receiving the nutrition they need, especially in low-income areas. 

County boards of education, local government agencies, and other nonprofit organizations are encouraged to participate in the Summer Food Service Program, which ensures children (ages 18 and under) facing food insecurity continue to receive free, nutritious meals during the summer when they do not have access the School Breakfast or National School Lunch programs. Sponsors typically represent schools, churches, community centers, libraries, housing complexes, and summer camps.

 

 

 

Monday, May 4: Gov. Justice announces wellness facilities, drive-in theaters to be allowed to reopen in Week 3 phase of “The Comeback”

Week 3 is scheduled to commence Monday, May 11, 2020.

Additional guidance documents have been released for these businesses to ensure they are reopening in the safest manner possible for all West Virginians:

Several additional types of businesses will be permitted to reopen in the weeks ahead. The opening schedule for these businesses will be based upon the recommendations of state medical experts and upon testing data available at that time.

The Governor’s Office will announce when businesses in Weeks 4-6 will be able to reopen as soon as possible. Additional guidance on reopening will be made available for each of these businesses at that time.

 

 

 

WEEK 2 PHASE OF GOVERNOR’S REOPENING PLAN UNDERWAY
During Monday’s briefing, Gov. Justice offered a reminder that the Week 2 phase of his reopening plan was officially underway.

This phase allows for the reopening of small businesses with 10 or fewer employees, restaurants with takeaway service or outdoor dining options, religious entities and funeral homes, as well as professional service operations such as hair salons, nail salons, barbershops, and pet grooming shops. Reopening businesses must follow all additional guidelines that have been put in place to help keep West Virginians safe.

Businesses included in each phase of this reopening plan are not required to resume operations on any specific date. This plan provides the option for reopening, not a requirement. 

“I encourage all businesses that are allowed to open to do so only if they can follow the guidelines to keep West Virginians safe,” Gov. Justice said.

 

 

 

“SAFER AT HOME” ORDER NOW IN EFFECT
Gov. Justice’s “Safer At Home” order also officially took effect Monday – replacing the original “Stay At Home” order issued last month.

EDUCATION, HEALTH OFFICIALS SECURE FEDERAL FUNDING TO HELP PROVIDE FOOD FOR FAMILIES IN NEED
Also Monday, Gov. Justice announced that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved West Virginia’s application for Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) cards to support child nutrition needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program is part of the CARES Act and delivers nutrition assistance on an EBT card that can be used to purchase groceries for families with school children who qualify for free or reduced price school meals. The EBT card holds the value of the free school breakfast and lunch reimbursement rates for the days that schools are closed.

More than 231,000 children in the Mountain State are eligible. It is estimated that more than $72 million in federal dollars will be coming to West Virginia households to be used in local grocery stores.

 

 

 

WEST VIRGINIA REACHES LOWEST TRANSMISSION RATE IN NATION
Gov. Justice also mentioned that, over the weekend, West Virginia’s statewide rate of COVID-19 transmission – also known as R
0 – was the lowest such figure of any state in the country.

The Governor added that West Virginia’s statewide cumulative rate of positive COVID-19 tests dropped once again to 2.27 percent.

“The national average is 16 percent,” Gov. Justice said. “Virginia is at 17 percent, Pennsylvania is at 20 percent, Ohio is at 13 percent, Maryland is at 19 percent, and Kentucky is at 8.5 percent.

“You really have done an amazing, amazing job.”

 

 

 

GOV. JUSTICE TOUTS WEST VIRGINIA SUCCESS IN NATIONAL INTERVIEW
Also on Monday, Gov. Justice made an appearance on the Fox News program Your World with Neil Cavuto, giving an in-depth interview about West Virginia's progress in the fight against COVID-19.

"If you look at West Virginia's numbers, it's truly a miracle as to what we've been able to accomplish here," Gov. Justice said. "We were preemptive in everything we did. We really got after it.

"We know we've got to still really watch and we've got to be safe and we've got to move forward in the right way."

 

 

 

NURSING HOME REIMBURSEMENT TO INCREASE $13.6 MILLION
Gov. Justice and DHHR Secretary Bill Crouch announced a $20-per-day increase for all nursing homes across the state.

West Virginia Medicaid, under the DHHR, will submit an Emergency State Plan Amendment to increase the daily rates by $20, retroactive to February 1, 2020.

This will increase nursing home reimbursement by $13.6 million.

 

 

 

GOVERNOR, DHHR RECOGNIZE CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS DAY
Also Monday, Gov. Justice issued a proclamation, formally designating May 4, 2020 as Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day in West Virginia.

“This is to increase public awareness about the needs of children with serious mental illness and severe emotional disturbance, and their families, and encourage those who need help to seek treatment,” Sec. Crouch said.

If you need mental health support, please consider calling or texting HELP4WV (844-435-7498). Additional mental health resources are also available on the BEHAVIORAL HEALTH page on Coronavirus.wv.gov.
