COVID-19 Screenings
Beginning next week, the Medical Center will lead an effort to offer a new way for Mississippians to be screened for COVID-19. By using the C Spire Health UMMC Virtual COVID-19 Triage app, residents can be screened for symptoms of the virus. If they are found to be at high risk for the virus, they will be given an appointment to have testing samples collected at the Mississippi State Fairgrounds. Only those using the app can take part.

Please do your part to flatten the curve. Familiarize yourself with social distancing guidelines and what is recommended by Public Health Officials.

Health officials recommend to avoid the following:
  • Group gatherings
  • Sleepovers
  • Playdates
  • Traveling
  • Church services
  • Visitors in your house
  • Non-essential workers in your house

Please keep your distance (at least 6 feet) when you:
  • Visit a local restaurant to get take out
  • Visit a grocery store
  • Pick up medications
  • Or spend time outside in public spaces

It is safe to do the following:
  • Take a walk, but stay six feet apart! 
  • Yard work.
  • Clean out a closet or read a good book. Listen to music, have a family game night or stream a favorite show.
  • Remain connected with friends and neighbors, but do so via phone or email. A video chat is a great way to combat social isolation.

Dear Clinton Chamber Members and Our Community,

We are continuing to work on your behalf in our community and with our governmental officials during this COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. 
 
The goal for the Clinton Chamber is to ensure that the information we share is accurate, informative and researched. We encourage you to visit  www.clintonchamber.org/news/coronavirus  for resources about the COVID-19 pandemic. There is information from the Mississippi Department of Health , Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization , among others. Our goal is to be your one-stop-shop for information, directions, and resources.
 
The goal for our community is to continue to SHOP LOCAL in ways that are safe and appropriate. Here are some ways to support Local Business during the coronavirus outbreak:

  • Give the Gift of Business — If you usually frequent a business, buy a gift card. Then spread out the use of those gift cards over time while you continue to support them as normal or give them away as gifts to people who might not normally go there or are having hard times.

  • Keep Your Subscriptions – If you have a membership or subscription, keep it going. Many small businesses rely on that support to keep their doors open. It is only a few weeks and your continued support can literally save their business.

  • Buy Now, Pickup Later – If you plan on buying a product, give the business a call. Pay for it and have them set it aside for you to pick up later.

  • Ask How You Can Help – If you know the owners or employees or a business, then text, email or call and ask how you can help. They might have ideas that are specific for their business.
 
We are going through this together and need to count on each other to be calm, rational and considerate. Check on your neighbors and at-risk community members as well by calling on the phone or sending private messages via social media, instead of going in person.
 
At this time, the Chamber office is open from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., but will be postponing some of our events to adhere to the CDC recommendations. You are welcome to call (601.924.5912) or email ( info@clintonchamber.org ), and let us know how we can help you.
 
Sincerely,
 TJ McSparrin
Executive Director
