CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Governor’s Highway Safety Program urges motorists to obey all traffic laws as they return to the roadways this Memorial Day holiday, following extended closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many travel destinations and restaurants were either closed or open with limited space and accommodations last year. With many West Virginians being fully vaccinated and mask mandates being relaxed, officials expect the summer 2021 travel season to be a busy one.
“I know West Virginians are ready to take a vacation and begin traveling again now that they are vaccinated against COVID-19 and the weather is warming up,” said Gov. Jim Justice. “I want to urge all of our drivers to take it easy, use caution around our construction zones, and make sure you leave plenty of time to get to your destination.”
