“We’re going out and trying to help all the businesses in Biloxi by putting out a flyer,” said Biloxi fire inspector Bobby Powell. “It’s basically just a notice from the city... just to let people know that these small businesses are still open.”

The small businesses WLOX talked to say they are appreciative of the city’s effort.

The signs indicate that the businesses are not allowing more than 10 people inside at one time and are also following social distancing guidelines.
