COVID-19 Dashboard
COVID-19 UPDATE - ROANE IN RED Today, Roane County moved to "red" on the WV DHHR daily COVID-19 map for the first time ever. 35 new cases were confirmed in the past 7 days. Data continues to show most cases in the 25 and older population, but some younger have tested positive as well. With students returned to school just this past Wednesday, these cases represent spread outside of schools. Remember the CDC's nine strategies to prevent the spread of COVID-19, particularly those that are personal responsibilities: - Get vaccinated if you are eligible - Wear a mask especially when physical distancing cannot be maintained - Keep three to six feet away from one another when in public - Practice good hand washing and sneeze / cough etiquette - Stay home when sick - Get tested if you experience any symptoms of COVID-19 Roane County Schools continues to address the three remaining strategies in our schools through improved ventilation systems, contact tracing and quarantine protocols, and cleaning and disinfection. These strategies can be practiced throughout the community to help keep us all safe and keep our kids in school.

COVID-19 UPDATE After a very quiet summer - summer school saw zero exposures - COVID-19 is once again on the rise. Eleven new cases this week represents the highest one-week total for Roane County in months. These cases tend to be in younger people, which also is the least vaccinated population. And, of course, younger than 12 years old is not eligible for vaccination - which raises concern with new variants like Delta on the loose and affecting younger people more severely. So to keep schools open and keep kids safe and in classrooms this fall, we need everyone to do their part - get vaccinated if you can and be safe when out in the community either way.
