MS State Medical Association calls for mask mandate
The Mississippi State Medical Association calls for a statewide mask mandate, requiring everyone to wear a mask in public areas.
This comes in support of physicians calling for the mandate to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases across the state.
Early evidence has shown that masks and face coverings significantly reduce the spread of SARS-COv-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19.
The medical association states we must resist the urge to relax safety measures that have proven effective in keeping people safe.
