Gov. Tate Reeves is warning the public to get tested for coronavirus if they have been in contact with a state lawmaker.
The number of coronavirus cases linked to an outbreak at the Capitol has grown to 36, which includes 26 legislators, according to the state’s top health official.
Many politicians flouted recommendations to wear a mask inside the Capitol in recent weeks. Now, about one in six of Mississippi state lawmakers have tested positive for the coronavirus.
