Public health districts across Virginia have opened public health call centers to answer questions on coronavirus.

Staff members at these centers are prepared to give information on symptoms, how to minimize risk and exposure, local and statewide conditions, testing resources and how they’re being used and what to do if you think you’re sick.

Below is a list of call centers:

Black Lung Benefits Drop For Kentucky Coal Miners After Controversial Law Change

Two years ago, Kentucky lawmakers made a controversial change to the rules for black lung benefits. Now, state records show that since that change, the percent of Kentucky miners diagnosed by state-approved experts as having the disease fell from 54 percent before the law change to just 26 percent. An analysis of state data by the Ohio Valley ReSource also suggests that the doctors now making decisions on claims more often side with coal companies than with coal miners.



Editorial: 'A grave national problem'

Through our history, we've often seen certain cities rise as new industries prospered - think of Detroit with automobiles in the 20th century. However, the economic fortunes of those cities were still linked to smaller communities elsewhere. Car makers depended on steel from places like Gary, Indiana, and those steel plants, in turn, were powered by coal from Appalachia. If Detroit was doing well, so were other communities along its supply chain, from Detroit to Dickenson County. The technologies that now drive the 21st century economy have broken that connection, though. Google isn't buying algorithms from digit factories in Clintwood. Tech industries in Silicon Valley may be doing great, but they're leaving the rest of the country untethered in a very different economy.
