JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi’s state health officer says he’s troubled by the state’s recent rise in COVID-19 cases.
Dr. Thomas Dobbs said Monday that all indicators are “starting to turn in an unwanted direction.”
He says six hospitals have no beds available in their intensive care units.
Republican Gov. Tate Reeves lifted a statewide mask mandate Sept. 30. Dobbs says he’s disappointed that some churches and businesses think they can no longer tell people to wear masks.
