Reeves applauded Mississippians for their commitment to doing the little things to help prevent the transmission of COVID, including wearing masks, staying six feet apart, and avoiding large gatherings.

Reeves also said a report from the White House on Monday disclosed that the number of COVID cases in the state is down approximately two-thirds from a peak of 9,300 cases indicated in one of the first reports.  State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs explained a way in which citizens can access COVID testing in their respective counties. “The last thing I want to mention is testing is available in every county at least once a week through the Department of Health drive-thru clinics. It’s currently available for anyone who is symptomatic, has any concern of exposure, you don’t have to have a confirmed exposure, but if you’re worried about being exposed, please get tested if you feel so inclined. But additionally, anyone in K-12 or childcare settings can go just because they want to.”
