West, by God, Virginia.
Governor Jim Justice isn’t messing around. He wants residents down there to follow the COVID-19 guidelines, and only then will they return to whitewater rafting, hiking, hunting, and eating pepperoni rolls:

Unfortunately, Justice declared that this was an audio glitch, and says he would never use the F word:
“Today at our news briefing there was an audio glitch,” Justice said. “And it sounded like that I had said a bad word. A word that I would never say nor have I ever said. No possibility in any way, shape, form or fashion.”
According to a statement released by Justice’s office, the governor’s actual quote was that he encouraged all businesses to reopen only “if they can follow” the guidelines.
Hmmm… do you believe him? Not sure I do, but either way, thank you governor for a good laugh.
