Mississippi is paying special attention to any outbreaks in these facilities and even one case is a long-term care facility is considered an outbreak because of the ages and poor health of many residents. Long-term care facilities include nursing homes, intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities, personal care homes, assisted living facilities, long-term acute care facilities, and psychiatric or chemical dependency residential treatment centers.

Neighboring Hinds County, still the state’s virus epicenter, is reporting 600 cases as of Thursday, an increase of 12 since Wednesday, and 11 deaths (unchanged).
