COVID-19 Test

Three more COVID-19 cases reported in Upshur County on Monday morning, free testing scheduled

Three more cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Upshur County, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced Monday morning. That takes the total number of cases to 18 – including five in the last 24 hours – with half of those currently listed as active.

Upshur County had reported just four cases during the first full three months of the pandemic, among the lowest totals in West Virginia. But that number has more than quadrupled in less than two weeks as 14 new confirmed cases have been identified locally.

The five new cases reported in the last 24 hours are not believed to be related to the stockyards, the Upshur-Buckhannon Health Department told My Buckhannon.

The health department also said that free community testing is tentatively scheduled for July 10 and July 11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Buckhannon-Upshur High School. We’ll share more information on that as the date approaches.

Overall, the DHHR reported 17 new cases of COVID-19 in West Virginia in their Monday morning update.
