Tucker County Lodging, Food, and Retail Status for 5/22/2020 by Jessica Waldo

Before diving into the list of openings, please read the current update from the Tucker County Health Department. We are encouraging all out of area visitors to error on the side of caution. Thank you.

May 21, 2020

Tucker County Health Department

Once again, COVID-19 is NOT GONE. With Memorial Day approaching and restrictions being lifted, we will have an increase in risk of exposure to COVID. Many experts have been concerned that we will see a significant rise in positive COVID-19 cases. We are seeing that already in some West Virginia counties. This makes it critical that we follow the recommendations that have gotten us to where we are today. The TCHD strongly recommends that everyone wears a cloth face covering when in public. We need to continue with hand washing and social distancing.

There has been a lot of questions related to what the 25-person group limit applies to, here is the answer received from State Health Department, the Governor’s office and the Governor’s General Counsel’s office: “There are two categories: Essential businesses (which are named in phases by the executive order) and everything else is social. The 25-person limit applies to everything but essential businesses. The Governor’s Office also indicated that there may be additional changes to this issue in the future.”

Today, Governor Justice again strongly encouraged all West Virginia residents to wear masks in public. He also announced that on May 30, swimming pools, bowling alleys, roller rinks, pool halls and other indoor amusement businesses can reopen, and movie theaters will be allowed to reopen on June 5.

Legislative Rule 64 CSR 114 has been amended the following are a couple of the changes and the entire rule can be viewed at:

All businesses open to the public shall limit access to the general public as follows:

No more than two individual members of the public may enter a retail business per 1,000 square feet of customer floor space at any given time; businesses of less than 1,000 square feet of customer floor space shall not permit that space to be occupied by more than five persons, including employees, at any given time.

For retail businesses whose sales are comprised of at least 80 percent grocery food products or more, no more than three members of the public may enter a business per 1,000 square feet of customer floor space at any given time.

All businesses shall take actions to establish appropriate social distancing measures for the public to the greatest extent possible, including but not limited to, marking areas a minimum of six feet apart at any area where persons are likely to stand or wait in line, creating one-way aisles, and any other restrictions which limit close contact with other people.

Business Status as of 5/22/2020

Tucker County thrives on small business and the entrepreneurs that make up our rural streetscapes. For up to date operating hours of businesses that are open for lodging, restaurant, and retail go to Route 32 and 219 would not be the same without them. Our service industry workers and community is certainly not the same without them. Covid19 is having a serious effect on the Tucker County economy and way of life.

After spending the past month adjusting to Covid19, various county agencies collaborated on a plan to stimulate economic relief. The Tucker County Development Authority, Woodlands Community Lenders, and Tucker County Convention and Visitor Bureau are asking for you participation in the S.O.S or Support Our Shops initiative.
