West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice announced today that the state has 510 active cases of coronavirus and 667 recovered cases.
He said they have not had any coronavirus-related deaths since Saturday.
“Our overall trend line is still trending in a good way,” Justice said, referencing the number of positive cases of Covid-19.
The governor spoke more about the “West Virginia Strong” comeback plan, saying they would enter the next phase of reopening on Monday.
“The comeback is officially in effect. Again, we are telling people we are allowing you to open and not requiring you to open. The safer-at-home order is in effect. The order strongly encourages all West Virginians to remain at home but no longer orders them to stay at home," Justice said.
The governor also said that people who have exhausted their unemployment benefits can now apply for pandemic emergency unemployment compensation, which gives them a 13-week extension of their unemployment benefits.
