 The first state in the United States! Mississippi announces cancellation of mandatory mask wearing order


According to the associated press and the New York Post, Mississippi governor Reeves said, due to the work and efforts of the people of Mississippi, we are now in a different situation. With the improvement of the epidemic situation of the new crown in Mississippi, he thinks it is reasonable to cancel the mandatory wearing mask order since August 5. It is reported that on July 30, the number of new cases in a single day in the whole Prefecture reached a peak of about 1775. However, on the morning of Reevess announcement of policy change, the number of new cases in a single day had dropped to 550.

In states such as Indiana, Wyoming and Iowa, some governors have never made a mandatory order to wear masks, although some cities in these states have issued their own orders.

In addition, Reeves said it would be up to residents to decide whether to wear masks. He said, we are carrying out an executive order, and I believe the people of Mississippi will do the right thing. If you want to call it credit system, I think its OK But Reevess health experts are not sure the measure is sensible.

Thomas Dobbs, a Mississippi Health official, said, I dont know if its legal, but Ill choose to wear a mask. Ill go out for dinner, but I wont have any small parties, and I wont go to my familys wedding. Although it makes me sad, I think these are the decisions we have to make (overseas website - USA - Qiao Shanshan / Sun Yuke, internship compiler)
