“It’s nine too many, but it’s a heck of a lot better than anything that’s going on around us,” Gov. Justice said. “And understand just this, there’s no other state anywhere close to us that has any results like that until you go way out west, where the populations are few and far between. Remember, we’re within a rock’s throw of two-thirds of the population of this country.
“It is testimony to what you, as West Virginians, have done all across this state and you, as businesses, that have really sacrificed and all the great stuff that you’re doing,” Gov. Justice continued. “I thank you in every way, West Virginia, and I mean it, you’ve done really, really good. And I can’t wait. I can’t wait to be able to see us back to work or back to school or whatever it may be.”
