Facial coverings mandate for retail establishments allowed to expire

Staff Writer
Governor Tate Reeves relieved some restrictions that were put in place during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, when changing the original mandate of the Stage 1 Shelter in Place order to Stage 2 Safer at Home.
The West Point Board of Selectmen, along with Mayor Robbie Robinson could not loosen the guidelines set in place by the governor at Stage 2, during the board meeting May 12, but they could opt to keep some of the directives from Shelter in Place.
The board voted three to two to continue the mandate of wearing a facial covering when entering a retail establishment through Monday, May 25, at noon.
