Four Mississippi state senators test positive for COVID-19

Lt. Governor Delbert Hosemann says four state senators are in isolation after testing positive for the coronavirus.

Two of the four had already been diagnosed last week and two more have been added to the list.

Hosemann gave the update during a news conference Thursday.

House Speaker Philip Gunn said last week that at least one House member was out with the virus.

Hosemann and Gunn were among about four dozen Mississippi legislators who tested positive for the virus last summer in the largest outbreak so far of any statehouse in the U.S.
