Gov. Reeves trying to restrict interactions but not issuing stay at home order
Governor Tate Reeves says he is issuing an executive order further restricting people’s interaction to try to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, but he’s not issuing a stay-home order.
It’s not clear what enforcement steps will be taken. He says his order Tuesday will define essential businesses. It will tell employers to let people work from home where possible.
People will also be ordered to stop gatherings of 10 or more and to stop visiting nursing homes and other places where people are more likely to become sick.
Mississippi has at least 320 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus.
