Requirement for Mississippi K-12 Schools to Report COVID-19

State Health Officer Order issued today (Aug. 14, 2020) by Dr. Thomas Dobbs

The order requires all Mississippi K-12 schools to report aggregate COVID-19 data weekly to the Mississippi State Department of Health. The current required reporting method is through an electronic survey that has been distributed to schools previously.  This reporting is a fundamental component of surveillance and the MSDH COVID-19 disease response. Thank you for your support.
