Brooke County Back to ‘Orange’ on Tuesday’s W.Va. COVID Map

Brooke County returned to an “orange” designation on Tuesday’s West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources daily COVID-19 alert map. The county spent Monday in “red,” the state’s most at-risk category.

Brooke showed on Tuesday’s map an infection rate of 98.98 cases per 100,000 residents and a percent positivity of 7.05.

Marshall County remained “red” on Tuesday’s map with an infection rate of 104.34 cases per 100,000 residents and a percent positivity of 8.69. Ohio County was “orange” with an infection rate of 93.49 cases per 100,000 residents and a percent positivity of 6.61, while Hancock County also was “orange” with an infection rate of 80.33 cases per 100,000 residents and a percent positivity of 6.23.

If those colors hold for this Saturday’s West Virginia Department of Education school openings map, students throughout the Northern Panhandle would be on remote learning for the next week — though Gov. Jim Justice previously announced that all school buildings in the state would remain closed for the start of next week and be allowed to reopen Dec. 3.
