We previously reported on the opening of Texas, which will be free of all Covid restrictions on March 10th.
Now, Mississippi has followed suit and it 100% open for business without restrictions starting tomorrow!
Starting tomorrow, we are lifting all of our county mask mandates and businesses will be able to operate at full capacity without any state-imposed rules. Our hospitalizations and case numbers have plummeted, and the vaccine is being rapidly distributed. It is time!

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R) announced on Tuesday that starting Wednesday all county mask mandates will be lifted and all businesses will be able to operate at full capacity.
Governor Reeves made the announcement shortly after Texas Governor Abbott announced an end to his state’s lockdown and mask mandate.
“This new order removes our county mask mandates and allows businesses to operate at full capacity without state-imposed rules or restrictions,” Reeves said during a presser on Tuesday.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA), who is facing a massive and historic recall effort that has gathered more than enough signatures already and may likely succeed, lashed out at Governor Abbott for restoring Constitutional freedoms back to Texas earlier tonight:
Absolutely reckless. https://t.co/3O5GsbSLpM

REMINDER: CA, you are now REQUIRED to wear a mask in public spaces.
We’re seeing too many people with faces uncovered. Wearing a face covering is critical for keeping people safe and healthy, keeping businesses open and getting people back to work.
Do your part. Wear your mask.

With enemies like Gavin Newsom, you know you are righteous.
Which state do you believe will be next to open?
