Marshall one of six red counties on Friday COVID alert map, Ohio remains orange
Marshall County remained “red” Friday morning on the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources COVID-19 alert map, one of six counties in West Virginia to sit in the map’s worst designation. Ohio County remained “orange,” the second-lowest designation.
Marshall County joined Wood, Jackson, Mineral, Hardy and Berkeley counties in that designation. Ohio County is one of 14 counties in “orange.”
Marshall County’s infection rate was 93.58 with a percent positivity of 8.65 on Friday morning’s map. That was an increase from 84.69 in infection rate and a 7.66 percent positivity from Thursday’s map. Ohio County had an infection rate Friday of 91.76 and a percent positivity of 6.47. That’s up from Thursday’s numbers, an 89.69 infection rate and 6.17 percent positivity.
The county’s color designations, if they remained those colors on Saturday evening’s West Virginia Department of Education school openings map, would keep students in both counties on remote learning for the week.
