The Virginia Division of Well being reviews this morning that there are 34 new instances of COVID-19 within the West Piedmont Well being District.

Franklin County, beset with a surge, added 19 of these instances and now has had 656, greater than double previously six weeks. Henry County added 9, Martinsville four and Patrick County 2.
