CHARLESTON — Seven new COVID-19 deaths were reported by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources on Sunday, raising the statewide total to 2,686.

“The length of this pandemic may cause some of us to grow weary of continued prevention practices. But for all families who have lost a loved one, each day it continues bears a painful reminder of someone loved who was lost,” said Bill J.
