Mississippi will maintain some COVID-19 related restrictions till at least the end of the month.
Governor Tate Reeves is extending the ‘Safe Return Order’ by two weeks. It will now expire June 29.
As cases, transmission and hospitalizations stay steady, so will the restrictions. Something that Governor Reeves says is necessary.
“My hope would have been that we could have no restrictions in Mississippi in the month of June but that’s just not what the data suggests,” noted Reeves.
The Governor and health officials looked at several factors when making those decisions. An alarming trend they’re finding is more young people getting the virus.
