The curfew limits all non-essential travel in the county between the hours of 9:00 pm and 6:00 am.

The curfew will remain in effect as long as the state and county are under a state of emergency or until the Board deems other action necessary.

Residents are required to remain in their homes or place of business during the curfew hours. Violators will be subject to a fine up to $500. Local law enforcement will enforce and serve citations if necessary.

Residents who must travel to and from work within the curfew hours are exempt. The curfew ordinance was passed unanimously. This ordinance includes the cities of Louisville and Noxapater.

Information From MEMA 3/24/2020

As with any similar situation, there is a great deal of inaccurate information and rumors that surface. Please be careful as to your source. If you have questions, go to a legitimate provider of information. Locally these include:

Also follow WLSM for current info as well.
MEMA released the following information to clarify the current situation:

  • Currently there is not mandatory stay-home order. We ask folks to avoid crowds and frequently wash their hand.
  • Healthcare workers will be our top priority when receiving supplies along with first responders.
  • If you see the National Guard, they are assisting with delivering supplies, doing humanitarian service to help MSDH and MEMA

  • MEMA and MSDH are working to send out more supplies this week. County EMA will receive a shipment to disperse to first responders, hospitals will receive a shipment and long-term care facilities will receive a shipment.

  • We ask people not to hoard food. This is to ensure everyone has access to the supplies they need. There is not a food shortage. The overwhelming demand has slowed the process of getting food back on the shelves.

  • Daycares and businesses can choose to close on their own, at this time there is no mandatory order to do so.

  • There is a list of testing sites available at msema.org and msdh’s website
  • Please call the COVID-19 Hotline for your questions: 877-978-6453

Comprehensive Info on Battling the Spread of COVID-19 in Our Community

There is a great deal of information concerning the COVID-19 virus (Corona) and the necessary precautions that is being passed around on social media and other news sources. The volume and purpose of this information can sometimes be confusing, inaccurate or overwhelming. Some of those sources are questionable in content and focus. There is still much that we don’t know about the virus and new and sometimes contradictory information continue to surface. Reposting undocumented and unsourced information from a friend of a friend of a doctor or health care professional may not be the best option.

Locally, Winston Medical Center and our Emergency Management team are doing a good job of providing information and resources to our community and that should be your primary source of knowledge for your actions. Follow the following Facebook pages and associated websites for current local updates:

Also follow WLSM for current info as well.

We have attempted to compile a comprehensive list of do’s and don’ts (from CDC, Ms. Dept of Health, MEMA and Winston Medical) for the public in response to the virus. Please take the time to consider and apply the following recommendations over the coming days and weeks:
