In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, much of the WVCBP’s research and advocacy focus has shifted to the virus’ public health and economic impacts in West Virginia. This page will serve as a home for our tracking of the economic impacts of COVID-19 in West Virginia, as well as resources for West Virginians who need them.
For the most up-to-date news and research, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and subscribe to our weekly newsletter. For specific inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or find contact information for WVCBP staff here.
