Mississippi COVID: Gov. Tate Reeves Orders Statewide Mask Mandate


Gov. Tate Reeves announced a new executive order Tuesday that requires every Mississippian to wear a mask at public gatherings and when shopping for the next two weeks. 

The announcement comes as coronavirus cases and deaths continue to surge and more than 1 in 5 COVID-19 tests in Mississippi are coming back positive, a staggering rate that indicates rampant infection.

Reeves said wearing a mask is irritating, but important to stop the spread of coronavirus.

“I hate it more than anybody watching today,” Reeves said at a press conference.

Asked about the timing of the mandate, Reeves said he is issuing the executive order because people are already following it.
