Original Message Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves was prepared to reopen more businesses in the state amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but he said Friday that a sudden increase in cases and deaths changed his mind.

Reeves announced his decision to hold steady under his “Safer at Home” order during his weekday news conference.

“Today, I was prepared to announce further reopenings,” Reeves said. “That was the plan and I was excited to get more of our people back to work. We have to get businesses back and we have to get back to normal life. There are still a few industries that are forced to be closed, and I absolutely hate that. It eats me alive every day.

Friday morning, the Mississippi State Health Department announced 397 new cases of COVID-19 and 20 deaths — the highest single-day increase in both numbers since reporting began March 11.

“I was ready to change our order today, but I needed to take the latest information into account,” he said. “This is a large enough change to take a step back and look at the board. I’ve come to the conclusion that I must hold on for now and consider it at least over the weekend.”
