BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) – The Mississippi Gaming Commission just confirmed to WLOX News that Mississippi casinos will be allowed to reopen at 8am on May 21.
We received the news right at the end of Governor Tate Reeves’s daily news conference. When asked about the reopening date, the governor said, “If the gaming commission has released their decision, it is final and official.”
The Mississippi Gaming Commission will send out its official order Friday. That order will include the guidelines all casinos must follow to reopen.
Several coast casinos have already been re-configuring their gaming floors, moving slot machines and table games to accommodate social distancing guidelines.
