After a last-minute cancellation of Tuesday’s press briefing, Governor Tate Reeves announced that his youngest daughter has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a recent tweet, the first-term governor asked followers to pray for his daughter as “She feels OK, but could still use prayers!”
Quick update: Elee and our other girls tested negative again. So did I. Since Maddie also had a negative test as recently as yesterday we’re going to monitor closely and be cautious. I’ve heard and felt the outpouring of prayers, and they mean the world to Maddie and all of us!

Reeves went back to Twitter on Tuesday night, saying that he and the rest of his family “tested negative again” but are still monitoring their youngest daughter’s diagnosis closely.
