Delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR. As case surveillance continues at the local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state border to be tested. Such is the case of Kanawha, McDowell, Ritchie, and Wood counties in this report. Please visit www.coronavirus.wv.gov for more detailed information.
