Flaggs to announce changes to city’s shelter-in-place order Tuesday

Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs Jr. will hold a press conference Tuesday to announce what restrictions in the city’s current shelter-in-place order will be lifted following Gov. Tate Reeves’ announcement Monday.

Reeves announced a plan that would allow restaurants and outdoor recreation facilities to reopen under certain guidelines beginning Thursday.

Flaggs’ press conference will begin at 11 a.m. and will be carried live on The Vicksburg Post’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/thevicksburgpost.

The city’s current shelter-in-place order expires Monday, May 11 at 8 a.m., the same time that the state’s order is set to expire.

In the current order, restaurants are restricted to curbside, pickup or drive-through services only. Dine-in and outdoor dining services are restricted currently by both the state and city orders.

Reeves’ new order also allows outdoor recreation facilities to reopen and increases the size of gatherings allowed from 10 to 20.
