A reminder to Mississippians, the new mask mandate is now in effect.
Based on the governor’s executive order 1507, the following counties must adhere to the use of a mask or face covering in public, practice enhanced safety protocols, and observe additional limitations on social gathers:
Everyone must wear face coverings when at public gatherings or in a shopping environment. People must maintain a six foot distance between themselves and others.
As for social gatherings, those are down to no more than 10 indoors and 20 outdoors.
