Reeves Knows a "Plateau" when He Sees One and Says This Is It


JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Governor Tate Reeves, at least, believes Mississippi is reaching a “plateau” in the increase of new coronavirus cases and will consider how the state should reopen parts of its economy. A statewide stay-at-home order began on April 3 and continues until April 27. Many businesses deemed “nonessential” are being forced by the state order not to open causing claims for unemployment benefits to skyrocket. On Monday Reeves said social-distancing measures will remain in place even after businesses start reopening. He also cautioned that health officials must remain vigilant about the potential for virus outbreaks among vulnerable people, particularly in long-term care facilities. COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in at least 77 long-term care facilities such as nursing homes.
