Governor Reeves Adds Six Counties to State Mandate, Along with Added Restrictions to Bars and Social Gatherings
In a press conference today, Governor Tate Reeves announced added restrictions to bars, restaurants, and social gatherings. Along with that, he also placed six additional counties on the state mandate of required masks and enhanced safety protocols.
These counties include Calhoun, Holmes, Lamar, Montgomery, Winston, and Yalobusha.
Reeves announced statewide restrictions focused greatly on bars, restaurants, and unnecessary social gatherings.
Social gatherings are limited to 10 or less indoors and 20 or less outdoors.
Bars can only sell alcohol to seated customers, and no alcohol can be sold at restaurants or bars after 11:00 PM until 7:00 AM. Previous social distancing measures, such as limiting to 50% capacity, updating floor plans to ensure 6 feet distance between groups, and limiting to 6 people per table, remain in effect.
Moving forward, bars can only sell alcohol to seated customers, and no alcohol can be sold at restaurants or bars after 11:00 PM until 7:00 AM.
This order will run in full force from 8:00 A.M. on Saturday, July 25 until 8:00 A.M on Monday, August 3 unless the order is modified, amended, or rescinded.
