JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) created a guide for schools to combat the coronavirus.
There are currently no cases of coronavirus in Mississippi as of March 3.
The guide includes proper hygiene techniques and practices.
“Though the risk to Mississippi is currently low, basic infection control should always be promoted and maintained, and schools need to be prepared in the event of a local illness outbreak,” State Superintendent Dr. Carey Wright said. “The MDE will continue to work with state and federal health officials and leaders to support the health and well-being of students, school and district employees, and communities.”
