Additional cases, local deaths reported as Board of Supervisors enacts county-wide curfew
As Tippah County is among the leading counties in Mississippi for per-capita cases of COVID19 and multiple deaths have been reported in Tippah County as a result of COVID 19, the Tippah County Board of Supervisors issued a curfew to take affect on April 2nd.
Here are the numbers from the MSDH, which does not include at least one recent local death attributed to the virus, according to family of the deceased:
The MSDH Public Health Laboratory is testing samples submitted by Mississippi physicians and healthcare providers around the state in cases where COVID-19 is determined to be a risk. Anyone with symptoms of fever, severe cough or severe chest pains – especially those who are older or in poor health – should call their doctor or healthcare provider for instructions on safely being examined. Healthcare providers can assess your health history and symptoms, and perform testing for COVID-19 as needed.
The Tippah County Board of Supervisors has issued a Shelter-in-Place and Curfew Ordinance that will be in effect from 5:00am on April 2, 2020 until 5:00am on April 15 unless extended by the Board of Supervisors or superseded by other orders of the Governor or other authorities.
