After a month of only targeting specific counties, the Governor issues a state wide mask mandate.Then, with more than 40 districts set to start classes this week, state officials set guidelines for schools.Plus, after a Southern Remedy Health Minute, how an all-woman research lab is helping understand COVID-19.Segment 1:Mississippi is now under a statewide mask mandate and all residents are required to wear masks when in public for the next two weeks. Governor Tate Reeves issued a statewide mask mandate yesterday following weeks of targeted county orders. Reeves says he believes that approach was effective, paving the way for the statewide order.The mandate comes as the state puts its worst month of the cornavirus pandemic in its rear view mirror. Cases of COVID-19 more than doubled in July and hospitalizations and ICU utilization rose to its highest levels. State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs says the best way to mitigate transmission of the virus is for everyone to "chill out".Segment 2:As Mississippi closes in on leading the nation in coronavirus cases per capita, the governorannounces he’s ordering schools in eight counties to delay reopening. Governor Tate Reeves issued an executive order requiring students in 7th thru 12th grade in eight counties he calls hotspots to delay opening until at least Monday, August 17. The counties are Bolivar, Coahoma, Forrest, Hinds, George, Panola, Sunflower and Washington. Reeves says a majority of school districts do not plan to begin classes until next week or later. He points to this as fact as part of his reasoning to only issue targeted delays. Segment 3:Southern Remedy Health MinuteSegment 4:Scientific research is not widely recognized as a women's game. Only 30 percent of the world’s science researchers are women, while in the U.S. the figure is only 28 percent for those in science and engineering: two of the four pieces that add up to the education curriculum known as STEM. But in a lab at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the percentage is 100: six out of six, including three women who are African American – another rarity. We speak with lab director Dr. Tanya Robinson and principal investigator Dr. Sarah Glover.
