Pearl River Resort casino temporarily reinstates mask mandate
All guests and employees of Pearl River Resort and Bok Homa Casino are temporarily required to wear face coverings, Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians officials said.
Pearl River Resort properties and Bok Homa Casino are temporarily reinstating a mandatory mask policy for all guests, effective immediately, the tribe said in a press statement issued Wednesday night. Associates are also required to wear face coverings.
Cyrus Ben, chief of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, has issued Executive Order 2020-060-B, reinstating face-covering requirements on Tribal land, the press statement said, adding spike in COVID-19 delta variant cases throughout the state has prompted the action.
“Health agencies recommend wearing masks to reduce the risk of infection from this highly contagious variant of COVID,” the press release states.
