Governor Janice Mills is forcing “high risk” businesses to close at 9:00 p.m. until December 6. Bars, casinos, movie theaters, and other performance venues are some of the businesses affected.
“As we enter the colder months and a holiday season when we customarily gather with friends and family, we are also entering a new and dangerous phase of the pandemic,” Mills said in a statement. “This targeted and temporary step will reduce extended gatherings while keeping the businesses open. Other steps may be necessary in the coming weeks if we do not get this virus under control.”
