From WJTV in Jackson, MS:
JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) released its weekly report on COVID-19 cases in K-12 schools in the state. The data showed nearly 1,000 students tested positive for the virus the week of August 2-6, 2021.
The data showed 296 teachers and staff tested positive for COVID-19, while 943 students tested positive. Sixty-nine outbreaks were reported at schools.
Health leaders said 382 teachers and staff are quarantined, while 4,435 students are quarantined due to COVID-19 exposure.
The shape of things to come for most of the students in states with no mask or vaccine mandates.
And this is from just ONE county in TN:
WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Washington County, Tennessee Schools report that 41 students and staff have tested positive for COVID-19, as of Monday, August 9.
According to the school district’s COVID-19 dashboard, 155 students and staff were in quarantine on Monday.
The vaccination rates in MS and TN are even WORSE than my home state of KY, and that is saying something.
