Mississippi Clarion Register: State health agency says its too busy to tell public which nursing homes have COVID-19 outbreaks

Mississippi Clarion Register: State health agency says its too busy to tell public which nursing homes have COVID-19 outbreaks. “The Mississippi Department of Health has a list of all the state’s nursing homes with outbreaks of coronavirus, but the agency claims it’s too busy to release it to the public. The Clarion Ledger filed a public records request on April 2 asking for the names of nursing homes with coronavirus outbreaks. In violation of state open records law, the Department of Health did not respond for a month.”
