Cases climbing, response grows
As of Thursday, 4 Hampshire County residents had been tested for coronavirus with 2 tests coming back negative and 2 pending.
The county schools expanded their service to students Thursday with buses running routes across the county to deliver meals to those who couldn’t make the trip to 1 of the 9 schools to pick up breakfast or lunch.
Statewide, all restaurants, bars, casinos, gyms and rec centers have been closed by decrees from Gov. Jim Justice. Restaurants can serve pick-up and drive-through meals.
WVU has canceled in-person classes for the rest of the spring semester. The action includes the Potomac State College campus in Keyser.
Spring is here: The vernal equinox just before midnight last night, with the season arriving at 11:49 p.m. Thursday.

Unplug and enjoy the Mountain State
In keeping with the trend of avoiding human contact, maybe use this weekend as an opportunity to cultivate a closeness with nature. Within a 90-minute radius of Hampshire County are a handful of scenic sites to hike, get a little fresh air and unplug. Check out parks such as Blackwater Falls State Park or Cacapon Resort State Park; even if you’re not an avid hiker, taking some time for some reflection in nature might be just what the doctor ordered.
