The West Virginia Hospital Association (WVHA) is closely monitoring developments related to coronavirus (COVID-19) and is working diligently with state and federal agencies to share the most relevant and up-to-date information.
 
While this is an outbreak of a novel coronavirus, preparing for responses to disasters is not new to hospitals.  West Virginia hospitals and health systems conduct emergency preparedness training year-round and all hospitals have established policies and plans for containing and treating infectious diseases and for dealing with patient surges should the need arise.  Hospitals are coordinating with community and government partners to ensure that medication, supplies, and personnel are deployed to meet the demand for medical services.
