Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today praised the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for awarding $58,580,583 to rural hospitals and hospitals providing care to a high percentage of vulnerable patients in West Virginia. $40,206,685 will be awarded to hospitals serving a high percentage of vulnerable patients and $18,373,898 will be awarded to rural hospitals. These distribution levels come after months of urging from Senator Manchin.

“I am relieved that after months of urging, HHS has made this investment in rural and vulnerable hospitals across West Virginia. Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, West Virginia hospitals were already operating on shoestring budgets to provide the best care possible. Like most things these days, their operations were complicated by the pandemic and they urgently need this emergency funding,” Senator Manchin said.


Charleston, WV – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $376,094 through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support health centers’ and health center look-alikes’ COVID-19 response and testing efforts in West Virginia. This funding was made available through the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, which was signed into law by President Trump on April 24, 2020.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our communities across West Virginia, we must support our health centers, healthcare professionals, lab workers, and front line workers who are caring for their fellow West Virginians around the clock. This funding will help support health center look-alikes to purchase, administer, and expand capacity for testing. This fight is far from over and as we work on more federal COVID-19 relief funding, I will keep advocating for funding that helps rural states like West Virginia respond to this crisis,” said Senator Manchin.  



Where can I get a test? This is a question my office has received since the beginning of this pandemic. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list; there may be more testing sites out there that are added daily.  In order to provide as much reliable information as possible, I am including testing sites that are verified through an official communication or news release.

For any organizations or health care organizations who would like their site listed, or who have updates on their hours or requirements, please email me at .

It is recommended that you seek testing only when you begin exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Click here to view the screening criteria. To report your symptoms and be directed to one of the available testing sites, contact your primary care doctor or a designated hotline for your area. Most, if not all, sites require a physician's order before testing. If you have gone through these steps and are still having issues getting a test, please email me at and a member of my staff will reach out to you to see if we can assist.
