26 Mississippi legislators test positive for COVID-19 after outbreak tied to state Capitol

36 people who work at the Capitol have tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, including 26 lawmakers. The figure means that about 1 in 6 legislators have contracted the virus.

The leaders of both chambers — Speaker Philip Gunn (R) and Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann (R) — are among those who have tested positive. ...

The uptick in infections follows a month in which many legislators worked in the Capitol without following health guidelines recommending the use of face masks.
