CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice says outdoor concerts at fairs and festivals will be allowed to resume next month as he continues to lift coronavirus restrictions in the state.

The governor on Monday said the open-air concerts at fairs and festivals can be held starting on July 1. Justice has pushed forward with an aggressive plan to remove virus restrictions on businesses.

Casinos and movie theaters were allowed to reopen last week. On Monday, low-contact youth sports teams as well as middle and high school teams were allowed to start practicing again.
