WEST VIRGINIA (WVVA) -- Governor Jim Justice is proposing another change to the County Alert System.
During his Monday COVID-19 press briefing, Justice said the orange category of the metric is 'too wide.'
He is now suggesting that a new color -- Gold -- be added to the map.
Gold would stand between the yellow and orange categories and range from 10 to 15 cases per 100,000 people (on a 7-14 day rolling average).
Counties in the gold category could attend in-person instruction, as well as participate in athletic competitions.
Justice is set to meet with health and education leaders at 5 p.m. to discuss that potential change - as well as other possible tweaks to the metric.
