Governor Tate Reeves held a press conference today to update the state on COVID-19.

“Mississippi is in a fight for our lives. COVID-19 is an ever-present threat, and we are in the middle of a spike,” the Governor said. “It is putting a strain on our hospital system. Today, I am announcing a new order which places tighter restrictions on thirteen counties that are seeing greater risk than others. Make no mistake. The risk is present everywhere. It is most visible in these counties.”
