On the Mississippi Gulf Coast, citing the growing number of coronavirus cases locally, Gov. Tate Reeves has issued a local order requiring face masks be worn indoors where adequate social distancing is not possible. The new mask mandate, which impacts Harrison County and a host of other counties, will go into effect yesterday and will be in effect until Nov. 11. Harrison County is now seeing an average of 62 new cases a day. The average number of cases reported each day had dipped to as low as 15 on Sept. 21, but has doubled, tripled and quadrupled since that time. The governor’s executive order, which excludes those exercising indoors, also says that social gatherings where social distancing is not possible shall be limited to groups of no more than 10 indoors or no more than 50 people outdoors.
