West Virginia takes its biggest step yet toward reopening today. A number of businesses including malls, specialty and large retailers along with restaurants at half their indoor dining capacity area set to restart operations. Also a number of recreational businesses are opening back up ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. There’s no Run for the Wall rolling through West Virginia this year–but a much smaller scale ride called Flags of Honor is passing through the state today. Mingo County has a third murder in a week and healthcare plans for Fairmont are moving forward. In Sports, WVU’s president says football for the fall looks secure and NASCAR races again at Darlington. Those stories and more in today’s Metronews This Morning podcast.
