Update Regarding Coronavirus—Mississippi Senate

From: News Release   3/16/2020   GCN

Jackson, Miss. — In response to the confirmation of Coronavirus in Mississippi, the Senate Rules Committee today voted to suspend the page program and floor presentations. Any additional decisions related to employees or visitors will be made next week.

Those who are sick or experiencing flu-like symptoms, however, should consider staying home from work, with permission of their supervisor, or scheduling their visit for another time.

“Ensuring the public has access to their Capitol is important to us. We are balancing protecting this right with the responsibility of ensuring everyone working in or visiting the Capitol is safe and healthy,” Lieutenant Governor Delbert Hosemann said. “We will continue to follow guidance from the State Health Officer to achieve these goals as we assess the Coronavirus situation in the State.”
