Gov. Tate Reeves tests negative for COVID-19 after scare


Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves has tested negative for the coronavirus, a day after announcing he was going into isolation after being exposed to a lawmaker who tested positive.

Reeves hasn’t identified the lawmaker who he came into contact with who has the virus.

During a Facebook Live video Monday afternoon, Reeves said a “large number” of legislators have tested positive for the virus.

The state health department hasn’t released more information.

At least two members of the Mississippi House of Representatives, including House Speaker Philip Gunn, have tested positive for the virus in the last week.
