March 22, 2020 - 4:02 PM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - West Virginia tourism officials are letting the public know the services that restaurants are offering during the coronavirus scare.

More than 150 businesses statewide on listed on an online dining guide that gives updated hours of operation and available dining services, including carryout and delivery options, the state Division of Tourism said in a news release.

The Tourism Office is asking all restaurant owners to share their updated hours of operation.

Gov. Jim Justice last week ordered the closure of bars, restaurants, casinos, gyms, health clubs, recreation centres, barbershops, nail salons and hair salons. Bars and restaurants can still offer carry-out and food delivery services, as well as sell unopened beer and wine to people who buy food.

As of Sunday, West Virginia has 16 confirmed cases of the virus, health officials said. That includes three individuals each from Jefferson and Kanawha counties, two each from Marshall, Mercer, Monongalia and Tucker, and one apiece in Jackson and Putnam. All cases are travel related.
