Governor Tate Reeves is once again urging Mississippians to stay home to help fight the spread of the coronavirus following another day of increased deaths in the state.
Reeves stressed in his press conference this afternoon that it is not time for the state to go back to a full normalcy.
The governor has pushed back the tax deadline until July 15th which was originally delayed until May. He also said he will open up more of the economy to help those suffering businesses. “We cannot allow the curse to be worse than this disease. Two hundred thousand Mississippians are out of work. We also have an economic crisis in this state.”
One thing Reeves stressed that none of the orders directly affects is churches. He says the government has not shut down churches but asks pastors to be smart and to be safe.
