Latest W.Va. COVID-19 map causes confusion for upcoming school week

WHEELING — Ohio County turned orange this morning when it comes to the number of active COVID-19 cases over the past week. Normally that would mean school would be done remotely and no sports would take place, but now that doesn’t appear to be the case.

State Sen. Ryan Weld, R-Brooke, said on his Facebook page that Ohio County would be yellow in the map set to come out at 5 p.m. today — which will allow classes to continue in-person.

All other Northern Panhandle counties are set to be in class next week.

More details will come with the new map’s 5 p.m. release.
