WV Metric Map Wipes Out Some Sports Next Week
Counties In Orange & Red Can’t Play When Seasons Start Sept. 2nd
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Orange was not the color of choice for counties in West Virginia Saturday night and red for that matter too. When the WV Department of Education released their metric map at 9pm, some counties in the state realized they will not be able to start their high school sports seasons on time. These are the counties that landed in the orange designation which signified between 10 and 24.9 cases per 100,000. By being in the orange, athletic and extracurricular activities limited to controlled practices/activities only. Fall sports in West Virginia are football, soccer, volleyball, cross country and golf.
Kanawha Fayette Logan
Monroe is the only county in the red which is 25+ cases per 100,000 and that means all school-related athletic and extracurricular activities are suspended immediately until yellow level is maintained on a seven-day rolling basis.
