Doctors Confirm West Virginia Governor Jim Justice is Battling Lyme Disease



June 2, 2022 - West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has officially been diagnosed with Lyme disease after falling ill last week.

In a release sent to 5 News, Gov. Justice says bloodwork confirmed the diagnosis.

On May 25, Gov. Justice announced he was being treated for “possible Lyme disease” after falling ill amid the WV GameChanger events in Wheeling and Blacksville.

“I am feeling better every day,” Gov. Justice says, “I remind all West Virginians, when you go outdoors, monitor yourself for ticks and use insect repellent to stay safe.”
