Governor Jim Justice made the announcement during a Wednesday press briefing.
Phase 2A includes all West Virginians 50 and up, teachers and school service personnel above 40, and the high risk population with chronic medical conditions. That includes anyone 16 and older with one of the conditions listed above.
"We're gonna jump back and try to take care of our kids that have real health issues," Justice said. "Because we see them at risk, too."
