Governor Reeves discusses the COVID-19 anniversary in Mississippi
In Gulfport earlier this afternoon, Governor Tate Reeves reflected on Mississippi’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a year to the day after the first case was reported in the state.
The governor says it’s been a long year for Mississippians, but the state has shown resiliency in battling the virus.
Reeves says over 800,000 vaccinations have been delivered to residents so far and as they continue to be administered across the state, he urges everyone to get vaccinated when they’re able to do so as the state charts a return to normalcy. “We’ve been through a lot, but the fact is that the vaccine is a game changer. It gives us the opportunity to get back to more of a sense of normalcy, and so I do want to encourage everybody on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and throughout our state.”
