Jim Justice: West Virginia Governor Feels ‘Extremely Bad’ After Testing Positive for Covid-19, Cancels State Legislature Speech

COVID-19 linked to neonatal complications

Justice, a Republican re-elected in 2020, has been a fervent advocate for vaccinations and booster doses throughout the pandemic, often using direct language when speaking to constituents about the benefits of inoculation. “I ask everyone to continue praying for the 5,452 great West Virginians that we’ve lost,” the governor said. “We need to keep pulling the rope together. We’re going to get through this and put an end to this terrible pandemic once and for all.” “If you’re out there in West Virginia, and you’re not vaccinated today, what’s the downside?” Justice said in July. “If all of us were vaccinated, do you not believe that less people would die? If you’re not vaccinated, you’re part of the problem rather than part of the solution.”

“I feel extremely unwell at this point, and I have no choice but to postpone my State of the State address to the Legislature,” Justice said. The speech was slated for Wednesday. A written message will be delivered to the state legislature to satisfy constitutional requirements and he will deliver an address at a later date, the statement said. The governor will be receiving a course of monoclonal antibody treatment, the statement said.

Everyone the governor has been in close contact with over the past few days is being notified, and West Virginia First Lady Cathy Justice tested negative Tuesday evening, according to the statement. “While I was surprised that my test results came back positive, I’m thankful to the Lord above that I’ve been vaccinated, I’ve been boosted, and that I have an incredible support system, especially my loving family,” Justice said.
