MS Governor supersedes county and city restrictions, declares most businesses "essential"

https://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2020/mar/24/gov-tate-reeves-orders-limited-gatherings-today-ex/



Gov. Tate Reeves signed an executive order early this evening superseding a patchwork of local bans on public gatherings in Mississippi and other heightened restrictions that several municipalities across the state have ordered or considered in the wake of COVID-19ís spread inside Mississippi. The state reached 320 official cases today, up 300 percent since 80 known cases on Friday.

The order seems to declare that most types of businesses in Mississippi are "essential" and thus exempt from social-distancing requirements suggested in the order. "The uninterrupted delivery of essential services and functions is vital to infrastructure viability, critical to maintain continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security, and is crucial to community resilience, continuity of essential functions and to promote the security and safety of Mississippi residents even as the nation limits human interaction and engages in social distancing," the order stated.

Notably, Reeves' executive order supersedes any orders by local mayors or other governing body in Mississippi that conflict with the businesses and organizations he deems exempt as "essential" businesses.

Reeves' order thus cancels "any order, rule, regulation or action by any governing body, agency or political subdivision of the state that imposes any additional freedom of movement or social distancing limitations on Essential Business or Operation, restricts scope of services or hours of operation of any Essential Business or Operation, or which will or might in any way conflict with or impede the purpose of this Executive Order is suspended and unenforceable during this COVID-19 State of Emergency. However, nothing in this Executive Order shall in any way alter or modify the authority of the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, the Mississippi Department of Public Safety or of the State Department of Health and the State Health Officer."

1. I only hope he'll be able to see his error in a few weeks.

It won't do the dead and dying much good by then.

4. Can we kick Mississippi out now?

Mississippi lags at the rear end of America. The majority of their citizens are obviosly too incompetent to vote for a decent leader.

11. I have elderly relatives, who are Democrats, who live in Mississippi.

I truly don't understand why people feel the need to hate on certain states and wish their residents ill. It's disgusting.

12. Same here.

I wish this disease on no one (with the possible exceptions being Trump and McConnell, the bastards).

7. Government mismanagement with peoples lives

Will prove to be deadly from this failure to accept reality, and from believing trump's. From refusals from doing what works and instead believing trump . people will lose their lives soon. This is what reckless irresponsible leadership looks like. We have a president encouraging this kind of dangerous and reckless actions now. Why aren't republicans not putting a stop to trump , and removing him now? He's killing people now.

9. Money over public safety. That's the classic Republican

playbook. This blaze attitude by leaders is a serious health threat, or a death sentence for many if the state's residents. It's criminal negligence.

These crazy red states aren't isolated, their infected residents are going to spread the disease far and wide to other states and increasing the duration we must stay at home.

10. I hope the mayors and other local officials defy him and keep their orders in place.

They should use their local law enforcement to enforce the bans. The local DAs should file lawsuits to tie the gov up in court.
