Governor Reeves adds more counties to mask mandate
JACKSON, Miss. (WXXV) — Governor Tate Reeves added several north Mississippi counties to a growing mask mandate on Monday.
Itawamba, Montgomery, Pontotoc, and Winston are now part of the growing list of counties in Mississippi under mask mandates.
Lee and Yalobusha Counties are under the same order until December 11th.
Last week, Mississippi saw at least three days where more than one thousand new cases were reported.
Reeves uses certain criteria, such as how many cases over a period of time per one thousand people.
