With the 2020 high school football season set to begin this Friday for most public schools and the MAIS season already underway, Governor Tate Reeves has increased the capacity allowance at games.
During Monday’s press briefing, Governor Reeves announced that high school stadiums can now be filled up to 25% “when social distancing is possible.” The previous iteration of the order allowed for “two spectators per participant” at any K-12 extracurricular activity.
Additionally, the governor has extended his executive order, including the statewide mask mandate, for two weeks.
