Coronavirus COVID-19

News Story

Dear Licensee of MSBML,

In preparation for Covid-19, we urge all licensees of the MSBML to go to the Mississippi Health Department website for the latest updates.

At the Medical Board, we will be taking a few precautions ourselves. While most of these precautions will have no effect on licensees, you should know we have canceled next week's Board meeting. Anyone that was on the agenda will be rescheduled based on the priority of the Board.

To ease issues with travel and canceled meetings, we have decided to extend the deadline for CME from June 30, 2020, to December 31, 2020. It is important for you to realize you will still be required to renew your license during the renewal period from May 1, 2020, to June 30, 2020.

As more information becomes available to us, we will update licensees to the greatest extent possible. Please use your common sense, education, training, and experience to deal with this pandemic to the best of your ability.

Letter from the state health officer, Thomas Dobbs


Kenneth Cleveland, M.D.

Executive Director
