According to Governor Tate Reeves, caution should be practiced Labor Day weekend to help control the number of new COVID-19 cases. A spike of cases following Memorial Day and July 4th reminds everyone to be careful this weekend.
To mask or not to mask??? That stills seems to be a question for many. Under the Governor’s extended mandate requiring mask, you need to wear a mask. (Even if you are like Kevin Walker who hates mask and most of the time refuses to comply with as he says “Tater Tots” rules!)
With the extended Safe Return, continued limits on all outdoor sporting events is in affect. 25% compact is the rule at events plus social distancing and MASK. I saw a good comment by Brandi Dear Smith a former SCA student on FB. Brandi wrote “If kids can go to back to school (inside), there is no reason for high school football (outside) to be at 25% capacity. You are punishing families who want to watch their kids, siblings, or grandkids. Ridiculous!” I think many people feel like Brandi.
But, I do feel we must honor and obey our Governor. I think by obeying, we are in turn teaching our children the importance of “minding” the person in charge.
Magee High School has just announced there will be 250 tickets for Friday night’s game against Collins for sale at the game! At the Jamboree Friday night, August 28., 2020, no tickets were on sale at the gate. The tickets are $7. 300 tickets will be available for students, teachers, and parents at the school. Collins will be provided with 200 tickets. (With the new mandates, the seating at the football game is 750 people.)
I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! Remember no school or garbage pick up Monday!
