The Mississippi Gaming Commission has authorized casinos in the state of Mississippi to cancel restrictions related to COVID-19 effective at 5 p.m. Friday, April 30.
Amanda Rebert with the Gaming Commission says that this comes with the caveat that the properties are privately owned and may still enforce or ask patrons to abide by rules of their respective property. Additionally casinos must still abide by rules and laws established by the jurisdiction in which their property is located.
All four area properties are located within the Vicksburg city limits. Mayor George Flaggs Jr. has scheduled a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Friday, in which he is expected to address the city’s COVID-19 Civil Emergency Order going forward. Warren County Supervisors have indicated that they plan to let the current restrictions governing the county expire on Monday, May 3.
