MERCER COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – A Mercer County Commissioner urges community members to abide by the stay at home order.
Greg Puckett says he’s concerned after seeing several community members gathering and going on unnecessary trips during the ongoing outbreak. The Stay At Home Order issued on Monday urges West Virginians to stay at home as much as possible.
“You may have no symptoms whatsoever, and then 7 to 10 days from now all of a sudden the virus is full blown,” says Puckett. “Then, you go get tested and then you quarantine from there, but if we social distance right now, then we can limit that and all get back to our lives.”
The Stay at Home Order will be in effect until further notice.
