JACKSON, Miss. – In a story July 9, 2020, about coronavirus cases in the Mississippi Legislature, The Associated Press erroneously reported in an early version of the story that a North Dakota legislator had died of the virus. The story should have said that a South Dakota legislator had died of the virus. Subsequent versions of the story did not include the error.
