On Friday, May 14, 2021, Gov. Justice signed an Executive Order to immediately modify West Virginia’s face covering requirement to follow the updated CDC guidance for fully vaccinated West Virginians.
The Statewide Indoor Face Covering Requirement no longer applies to anyone who is fully vaccinated.
The Statewide Indoor Face Covering Requirement (all persons age 9 and older must wear a face covering at all indoor public places where six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained) is still in effect for all West Virginians who are not yet fully vaccinated, and will remain in effect for these individuals until June 20, 2021.
