CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – State officials weigh in on celebrating Mother’s Day while staying safe.
West Virginia DHHR Secretary Bill Crouch says there are several ways to honor mothers without risking spreading COVID-19. He suggests sending a gift, putting together a video or simply giving the mothers in your life a call.
“Mother’s Day won’t look quite the same as it has in the past, but it’s important that we protect our mothers and protect our family,” said Crouch. “I want to say a special happy Mother’s Day to my mother. I haven’t seen her in over two months now.”
Crouch also said that if you have access to a large enough space, you could meet with mothers while maintaining distance.
