Residents rejoice about no COVID-19 Cases reported Sunday in Lauderdale County

Yesterday, the Mississippi Department of Health released 361 new cases of COVID-19 and 4 new deaths-neither new cases nor deaths were reported in Lauderdale County.

Many rejoiced from hearing this news and think residents are doing better with the virus and finally realizing how serious it is.

“It feels good that there were no cases reported-assuming that the people are taking this seriously, wearing their masks and staying six feet away from each other,” says resident Lee Anderson.  “A good feeling of maybe it’s getting better.”

One resident expressed even though there were no new cases, there’s still a long way to go.

“That’s great news-it’s always great news not having any cases reported as of one day, but we still have a long way to go,” says resident Anthony Brown. “I still think it’s important to social distance, everyone needs to play their part. It takes everyone, it takes a community. So as far as getting past this, it’s going to take a while.”

He also says young people need to stay informed about the safety since the virus is starting to target them more.

“We gotta practice, practice, practice and we have to keep our kids informed on what’s going on,” says Brown. “That’s the important thing because it’s the youth who are getting hit by it more now as much as the older people.”

“I just want to encourage everybody to follow the guidelines, social distancing and wear your mask at all times,” says Anderson.
