CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – On Friday, Gov. Justice officially signed and filed the Executive Order that will allow businesses in the “Week 3” phase of the Governor’s reopening plan to resume operations if they so choose.

Businesses that are part of the Week 3 reopenings include drive-in movie theaters and wellness centers operated by or with West Virginia Licensed Health Care providers.

“THE COMEBACK” SCHEDULE REMINDER
Also on Friday, the Governor offered a reminder about the current reopening schedule for The Comeback plan:

This schedule may be altered if changes to the timeline are deemed necessary for the safety of West Virginians.

The Governor also provided a reminder that on this coming Monday, May 11, businesses included in the Week 4 phase of reopenings will be announced so they have adequate time to prepare to resume operations while following all additional guidelines.
