Governor Tate Reeves issued a supplement to his latest executive order to clarify and provide direction for leaders across the state to protect the health and well-being of Mississippians during the outbreak of COVID-19.

“Consulting with our state’s health experts, we have established a statewide standard of social distancing and defining essential businesses to slow the spread. There should be no confusion about my intent and commitment to protecting public health. We must come together as leaders, as a state, to ensure the health of all who call Mississippi home. We are all in this fight together,” said Governor Tate Reeves.

In this supplement to Executive Order No. 1463 (provided below), Governor Reeves provides clarity to ensure uniform statewide parameters to slow the spread of COVID-19, including:

  • No measures can be adopted that are less restrictive than the executive order.
  • Any existing local measures can remain in effect under the executive order, as long as they provide the same minimum standards established in the executive order and do not impose restrictions that would prevent essential services from operating.

Governor Reeves announced the supplement at a press conference outside the Governor’s Mansion. You can view his full remarks here.
