JACKSON, MS – Mississippi Governor John Tate Reeves today declared an end to his state’s business restrictions related to COVID-19 and canceled all mask wearing mandates effective Wednesday.
“Starting tomorrow, we are lifting all of our county mask mandates and businesses will be able to operate at full capacity without any state-imposed rules. Our hospitalizations and case numbers have plummeted, and the vaccine is being rapidly distributed. It is time,” Reeves said.
Reeves said the time is now to get his state back to normal.

“We need to recognize that none of these orders, in any state, are anything short of unprecedented. They have to end at the earliest possible moment. This is that moment for Mississippi,” he said.
Reeves said executive orders are ruining lives and jobs across the country and is proud that his state didn’t go as far as other states such as California, New York, New Jersey and Michigan which are still in extremely restrictive anti-business lockdowns.
