About our case counts: We currently update our map and statistics each morning with test results from the previous day. Outside laboratories also report positive test results to us, which are included in our totals.
County case numbers and deaths may change as investigation finds new or additional information.
The charts below are based on available data at the time of publication. Charts do not include cases where insufficient details of the case are known.
The MSDH Public Health Laboratory is testing samples submitted by Mississippi physicians and healthcare providers around the state in cases where COVID-19 is determined to be a risk. Anyone with symptoms of fever, severe cough or severe chest pains – especially those who are older or in poor health – should call their doctor or healthcare provider for instructions on safely being examined. Healthcare providers can assess your health history and symptoms, and perform testing for COVID-19 as needed.
MSDH Public Health Laboratory (MPHL) testing totals as of 6 p.m., March 29, 2020. These totals are for tests performed at the MPHL only.
Local healthcare providers are now providing sampling and test services at locations across the state for those with COVID-19 symptoms.
