Health Department Issues Guidance Following Lifting Of Mask Mandate


In conjunction with the governor's decision to lift the mask mandate, the State Health Department has issued public health guidance urging adults 65 and older and those 16 and older with serious chronic medical conditions to continue to avoid all social gatherings outside their household until they're vaccinated. And speaking of vaccinations, the first shots in Mississippi with the new one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be administered Thursday at four of the state drive-through sites-- in Madison, Jones, Lauderdale and Lowndes counties.
