Task Force Addresses Public Health And Business

The Greater Greenbrier COVID-19 Task Force met Wednesday via conference call and discussed public health. WalMart, Kroger, & Dollar General are now offering senior hours for shopping. At WalMart, it’s 6-7am on Tuesdays. At Kroger, it’s 7-8am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. At Dollar General, the first hour the store is open is devoted to seniors. Workers may begin wearing masks just to be safe. In terms of testing, new rapid testing has been requested here and we hope to receive some in the next few weeks. Any rapid testing that is received will be given to the hospital. West Virginia’s peak for COVID19 cases is expected in late April. Out of 160 total tests in Greenbrier County, 66 are confirmed negative, 4 are confirmed positive, and 90 are pending.
