Waller won’t ‘go’ to DNC in August

By JOSH TROY THE PRESS REGISTER,

 

Jen Waller was all set to go represent Coahoma County and the Mississippi Delta as a delegate at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and while she will still represent us, she won’t go.

The convention is Aug. 17 to 20 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisc., but it will be meeting virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is unlikely Waller, a Clarksdale native and currently the director of the Coahoma County Higher Education Center, will be able to attend the convention, but she will be able to cast her votes as a delegate and hopes to use her experience to make a difference.





First Nursing Home Case Reported In County

By FLOYD INGRAM / THE PRESS REGISTER,

 

Coahoma County posted its first reported case of coronavirus in a nursing home Monday, while the state saw the traditional drop in cases reported over the weekend.

Mississippi reported only one death from the disease on Monday.

Coahoma County went 118 days into the pandemic without a case of the virus reported in a Long Term Care (LTC) facility. The state’s case count for LTC’s also includes staff who test positive with the disease and not just residents of those facilities.

There have been no deaths reported in LTC’s in Coahoma County.
