Charleston, WV –  U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) pressed U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin for an update on the unresolved issues with nearly 6,700 West Virginians who have yet to receive their Economic Stimulus Payment (EIP). When the CARES Act was passed in March, the EIP was intended to provide support to those in need. Instead, thousands of West Virginians have been left without assistance during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and are in need of answers.

Senator Manchin wrote, “When Congress passed the CARES Act, we authorized a robust set of programs aimed at helping vulnerable Americans weather the new economic challenges presented by this unprecedented healthcare crisis. This included $293 billion to ensure every American, making up to $75,000 as an individual or $150,000 for married couples, would receive immediate financial assistance. While I commend you for steering the federal government’s massive effort to deliver over 159 million EIPs to impacted Americans, including 964,000 West Virginians, I remain concerned about the lack of attention that has been paid to all those who are still anxiously waiting today.”



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.
