Mississippi warns vulnerable residents to avoid indoor gatherings no matter vaccination status

Mississippi cautioned residents aged 65 and older and those with chronic medical conditions to avoid indoor mass gatherings whether or not they are vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The Mississippi State Department of Health issued on Friday an updated set of recommended precautions for residents to take through July 26, including having the vulnerable stay away from indoor gatherings.

The department pointed to "a significant rise" of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, as well as the "rapid increase in delta variant cases and outbreaks" amid "the low overall vaccination rate" in the state.

Officials also recommend that all Mississippi residents aged 12 and older get the COVID-19 vaccine, and all unvaccinated residents wear a mask in indoor public settings.
