The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is moving to a level one activation in response to COVID-19.
MEMA Director Greg Michel says, “This is a posturing move to make sure all of our emergency support functions are in place to assist the Mississippi State Department of Health. This activation is not to create panic. We at MEMA are ready to coordinate with our county emergency management agencies and MSDH to ensure there are no unmet needs during the response and recovery from COVID-19.”
MEMA is assisting the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) in its response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will help coordinate any additional resources MSDH may have during their planning, response, and recovery stages.
The Mississippi State Department of Health is providing a COVID-19 hotline at 877-978-6453 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
