Sunday update: 183 new COVID-19 cases in Mississippi, eight new deaths

NATCHEZ — The Mississippi State Department of Health reported another 183 new COVID-19 cases and an additional 8 deaths in the state on Sunday.

Mississippi now as 1,638 confirmed cases and 43 deaths that resulted from COVID-19 since March.

Adams County is up by three cases since Saturday morning with a total of 19 cases, including one at a long-term care facility in the county.

Adams County Emergency Management Director Robert Bradford said that the case at the long-term care facility is known and the family and exposed individuals have been notified but would not provide the name of the facility on Saturday.

MSDH states that long-term care facilities, like nursing homes, are considered high-risk locations because their residents are older or are in poor health. Even one case of COVID-19 in these facilities among residents or employees is considered an outbreak.

Wilkinson County had an additional five cases reported by MSDH on Sunday for a total of 30 cases and three deaths in the county.

Below is a table from MSDH showing the number of COVID-19 cases and long-term care facility outbreaks.
