The state of Mississippi is shaded gray this week on the travel advisory map. The Ohio Department of Health said Mississippi is showing reporting irregularities with the data for total tests reported in the past week so the positivity rate cannot be calculated.

The advisory is intended for both leisure and business travel, as well as Ohioans and out-of-state travelers.
