The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced Tuesday that 21,752 cases of COVID-19 are currently active in the Mountain State. That’s an increase of 252 since the last report.

Locally, COVID-19 cases are active in Upshur (381), Barbour (300), Lewis (191), Randolph (309) and Webster (82) counties. In Upshur County, that’s a decrease of 17 active cases in the last 24 hours.

Three additional deaths have been attributed to the disease, according to the DHHR – a 65-year old male from Harrison County, a 44-year old male from Logan County, and a 66-year old female from Kanawha County.
