The Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department (MOVHD) announces that new positive cases have been reported in Ritchie and Roane Counties Saturday evening.

Ritchie County now has two positive cases and Roane County has 12 cases. Calhoun County has three cases, the latest case yet to be added to the state website.

Wood County remains at 54 positive cases. Wirt County has four and Pleasants County has two. Cases are listed by the county of residence.

With recent outbreaks after travelling out of the area, MOVHD would like to remind people to be vigilant if visiting an area with higher community transmission or a “hot spot.” Be mindful to social distance, wear a mask when in public and sanitize hands and surfaces often. Recently, MOVHD has received reports from concerned travelers returning from Myrtle Beach. If you have recently traveled to Myrtle Beach, please stay home for 14 days after return and monitor for symptoms. Contact your health care provider or the health department if you have travelled and develop symptoms.
