CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – More than two dozen coronavirus cases in a northern West Virginia county have been linked to travel to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Preston County health officials said three more cases were connected Sunday to the popular beach tourism spot, pushing the county’s total to 26 following trips to Myrtle Beach.

Health officials say those testing positive along with others who had close contact with someone having a confirmed case must self quarantine. Virus cases from other counties involving Myrtle Beach trips include at least six in Kanawha and five in Cabell.
