Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves announced on social media that his Tuesday news briefing will feature some good news for churchgoers.
“Remember they were named essential services and never officially shut down: I don’t believe the government can or should do that. Mississippi isn’t China—thank God,” Reeves wrote.
“I did personally ask pastors to pause in-person services so that they could keep their flocks safe. I want to help those pastors to safely resume in-person services. Today there will be some good news on that front.”
Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs announced last Friday that churches in the city could resume services on a limited basis on Sunday, May 17.
