CLARIFICATION ON FACE COVERING,
CONCEAL CARRY LAWS
Also on 7/7/20, Gov. Justice’s General Counsel Brian Abraham added that, while
there is a law in West Virginia that prohibits the use of face coverings in
public, there is an exemption to that law for emergency situations such as the
ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The new face covering requirement does not restrict
the right of West Virginians to carry concealed weapons.
