WVC 16 - 4 A- 4 §16-4A-4. Notation on birth certificate.
Every physician required to report births and stillbirths, shall state on each birth certificate or stillbirth certificate, as the case may be, whether a blood test for syphilis was performed during such pregnancy upon a specimen of blood taken from the woman who bore the child for which the birth or stillbirth certificate is filed.

If such test was made, the physician shall state on the certificate the name of the test used, the date the test was performed and the name of the laboratory making the test; if not made, the physician filing the certificate shall state the reason or reasons why such test was not performed. In no event shall the result of the test be stated on the birth or stillbirth certificate.
