Mississippi gamblers told to mask up in casinos starting Friday night

Gamblers in Mississippi will be required to mask up before entering Mississippi casinos starting Friday night.

The Mississippi Gaming Commission announced Thursday that it would require all players, guests and spectators to wear face masks beginning at 8 p.m. Friday.

The new policy is in response to a rising number of COVID-19 coronavirus cases across the state and on the advice of the Mississippi State Health Department.
