Gov. Reeves and family test negative for COVID-19

After a handful of lawmakers recently tested positive for COVID-19, Governor Tate Reeves announced yesterday that he and his family had been tested for the virus.

This morning, the first-term governor went to social media to inform his followers that he, his wife, and their three daughters have all received negative test results.

He also used the post to say that he will be having another press conference tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. In yesterday’s briefing, Reeves said the media “ignored” covering the virus for weeks as protests took place across the country.
