Controlling the spread of COVID-19 will require all of us actively working to prevent it. Practice everyday preventive behaviors. Stay home when sick. Cover coughs and sneezes. Frequently wash your hands (at least 20 seconds) with soap and water. Disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources hotline is available 24/7, toll-free at 1-800-887-4304 to provide accurate information about COVID-19, the risk to the public and the state’s response. 

If you’re experiencing fever, new cough or new shortness of breath (difficulty breathing), call first before seeking medical care. Tell your health care professional about your symptoms and if you’ve recently been been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread.
