Gov. Jim Justice announced last week that he lifted the face coverings requirement for people who have been FULLY VACCINATED.

The governor said the change would take the form of a revised executive order. He noted that the state’s mask mandate would still apply to those who are NOT FULLY VACCINATED.

“Our face covering requirement will still apply to all those who have not been vaccinated until June 20,” Justice said.

CDC’s website says:

  • If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
  • Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
  • These recommendations can help you make decisions about daily activities after you are fully vaccinated. They are not intended for healthcare settings.

  1. I recently visited Tucker County. I had breakfast at The Sawmill on October 5th. NONE of the staff were wearing face masks. I traveled for three weeks through NC, TN, WV, and VA. This was the only business where I observed employees not wearing face masks. I felt vulnerable and could not enjoy my meal. Sincerely, Don Ross

  2. I am a 85 year old male and would like to get vaccinated when it is available. Can I get on a list to be notified when it is available.

  3. Hi,
    I frequently must visit Shop ‘n Save Express in Davis. I noticed multiple f times that employees in the back don’t wear a mask. Also, some customers do not wear a mask. I nicely spoke to my cashier about it. She kindly responded that it is not nothing that she can do because it is optional to wear a mask in WV.

    I was very surprised about it.

  4. My husband & I moved to tucker county 6mths ago. We are both 66 yrs old. Where can we get the covid vaccine?

  5. All day today I tried to call the number listed on yesterday’s post to get an appointment for COVID vaccinations at the Regional Vaccination Clinic in Randolph County on Thursday of this week. I called the number literally 65 times since 10:00am — and always got a busy signal or the call was just disconnected. The number answers now, but gives a message that its mailbox is full and then gives options about entering a last name, or dialing an extension or holding for an operator — NONE of which work. I’m 70 years old and am very eager to be vaccinated. What is the point of offering the option to call a number to make an appointment if it doesn’t work?

  6. Thank you, Mr. Snyder for your thoughtful email reply to my posting yesterday. Yeah, it’s really frustrating to keep dialing all day with no luck, but I do understand that the folks on the other side of the line are working as hard as they can to get vaccines into the arms of folks like me. I will TRY to be more patient!

  7. Question
    If we got our first dose, are we to report to the Phil Gainer Center in Elkins on the date printed on our card for our second dose? Or, should we wait to be notified about our appointment for our second dose?
    We are registered in the new system.
    Thank you so much
    ,
    Eileen

  8. Thank you so much for your efforts James. You have been so professional and open to those of us with questions. We are lucky to have you!
