Human health insurer exceeds profit estimates under Medicare Advantage strength

Wood County Schools on Sunday announced Blennerhassett Middle School will reopen today when classes resume. The school was closed on Friday because of a surge of cases in students. “We have lost too many loved ones to COVID-19 and send our sympathies to these families,” department Secretary Bill J. Crouch said. “Choosing to be vaccinated can protect yourself, your family, and your community.” Contact tracing and deep-cleaning of the school was performed this weekend, the school system said.

Deaths include a 50-year-old woman from Roane County and a 102-year-old woman from Doddridge County, the oldest among the 24 deaths, the department said. Also confirmed were the deaths of residents from Lewis, Brooke, Braxton, Mason, Marshall, Raleigh, Kanawha, Wayne, Ohio, Wyoming, Harrison, Wyoming, Jefferson, Pendleton and Raleigh counties. The Labor Day pandemic report also said active cases again rose in Wood County and other counties in the region while most of the counties including Wood are red in the County Alert System map, the highest level of infection rate and percent positivity.

Statewide, the death toll since the pandemic began in March 2020 was at 3,148 as of Monday. CHARLESTON — Twenty-four more people including residents from Roane and Doddridge counties were among the deaths from the virus reported Monday morning by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

The school system on its coronavirus dashboard updated on Friday reported 174 active cases in schools, the most were at Blennerhassett Middle School with 29 and Parkersburg High School with 21. No cases were listed at Jackson Middle School. Ninety-seven cases district-wide were cited the week before. More details on those options are available in the guidance document.

According to the school system, if a COVID-positive exposure occurs: students who have been vaccinated do not have to quarantine; students attending a county with a universal mask requirement such as Wood County Schools and are unvaccinated will need to quarantine if within 6 feet of a confirmed case in high-risk areas such as cafeterias or extracurricular settings where masks are not worn; and the quarantine will last for 7-10 days. The School Recovery and Guidance Document, including who should quarantine after a Covid-19 exposure, also was updated and can be found at https://5il.co/y5mx.
