Not so good. West Virgina has the country's 3rd highest rate of Covid deaths per capita. Cases are up 25% in the past few weeks.

I guess that Senator Joe Manchin is happy with those numbers. He said,

"I will strongly support a bill to overturn the federal government vaccine mandate for private businesses. I have long said we should incentivize, not penalize, private employers whose responsibility it is to protect their employees from COVID-19," Manchin said in a statement last week.

He's been on the record repeatedly about his opposition to mandates on private businesses, though he supports the mandate for federal employees.

Manchin released a statement following the Senate vote defending his long-held position that it is "not the place of the federal government" to mandate vaccines.
