West Virginia University officials said more than a dozen students have been placed on probation for COVID-19-related violations.

The Office of Student Conduct has placed 17 students on probation for the violations as of Wednesday, according to a news release from the school.

The office is also processing charges for approximately 15 additional students who will face probation if found responsible.

Another student with a history of repeated COVID-19-related violations is scheduled for a student conduct hearing that could result in suspension or expulsion if found responsible.

The university announced last week that six students had initially been identified and placed on probation as part of an investigation into parties held earlier this month in the downtown areas near campus.

Two dozen inmates at Mount Olive Correctional Center in Fayette County have tested positive for coronavirus, and there are now 39 outbreaks of the virus at long-term senior care facilities in West Virginia, Gov. Jim Justice said.

At South Central Regional Jail in Kanawha County, all inmates who had the virus have recovered except for six active cases. There are three active staff cases at South Central. Inmates with the virus at South Central and Mount Olive are being quarantined, and employees with the virus are self-quarantining at home.

A dozen WV deaths from COVID-19 have happened this week.

Justice said the most severe outbreaks at nursing homes are at the Grant Rehabilitation Center in Grant County; the Cedar Ridge Center and Marmet Nursing Home in Kanawha County; Trinity Health Care in Logan County; Princeton Health Care in Mercer County; Springfield Center in Monroe County; Pine Lodge Nursing Home in Raleigh County; and Rosewood Nursing Home in Taylor County.

As far as church outbreaks, he said there are outbreaks in four counties – Monroe, Cabell, Wood and Wyoming – for a total of 29 cases.
