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.

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