The Mississippi State Department of Health on Sunday reported 139 new cases of COVID-19 in the state and three new deaths.

Adams County’s cases rose by two overnight from 49 on Saturday to 51 Sunday with still one death and two cases in long-term care facilities in Adams County.

Statewide numbers are now at 2,781 total positive cases and 96 deaths.

Long-term care (LTC) facilities like nursing homes are considered high risk locations because their residents are older or in poor health. Even one case of COVID-19 in these facilities among residents or employees is considered an outbreak. We investigate residents, staff and close contacts of infected individuals for possible exposure. The number of LTC facilities with outbreaks are shown for each county in the table below.
