How to Hold an Open Meeting During the COVID-19 Pandemic
March 31, 2020
The West Virginia Open Meetings Act (the “Act”)1 continues to apply to all public agencies.

This is permissible under the Act, provided the public may also attend. This applies to a governing body’s emergency, special, and regular meetings.
