Published 2:03 pm Wednesday, April 1, 2020

Statewide media outlets are reporting Gov. Tate Reeves, during a press conference at 3:30 p.m. today will announce a statewide shelter-in-place order.

This is part of the state’s response to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which Wednesday surpassed 1,000 confirmed cases in Mississippi.

The exact details of the order — or when the order will go into effect — have not been released. We will update the story once the information is available.
