In this time of “social distancing,” West Virginia’s roadways still need attention, and our hard-working DOH employees are still on the job — with some changes to reduce the number of workers at a given site.

Transportation workers have been divided into two groups, and two-week time periods have been established.

For each time period, one group will work from home, completing a rigorous training course. The other group will continue roadwork and emergency response, while taking precautions to avoid COVID-19 exposure. At the end of two weeks, the groups will switch.
