On August 4, Governor Tate Reeves signed an executive order that implemented a two week statewide mandate for mask wearing.

A week later, it looks like the effort is bearing some fruit.

On August 4, the day the order was announced, Mississippi confirmed 1,245 cases and 51 deaths.  As of August 10, Mississippi had 644 confirmed cases and 32 deaths, and those numbers trended down.  Analysis typically review 7 day averages of both numbers, and there has been a steady decline.

Here are the updated COVID-19 statistics since inception.
