City's Enforcement Procedures for Violation of Curfew and State Order #1466

The City of Louisville approved their own Curfew Order  that closely mirrors the Countywide Order issued by the Board of Supervisors. That order can be found on the City's website at http://www.cityoflouisvillems.com/.

The City also included enforcement procedures for those in violation of the curfew and the Governor's "Shelter In Place" order. Those procedures are provided below. (also available on City website)

For those establishments and individuals choosing to further the spread of the virus by ignoring social distancing protocols and allowing the gathering of groups, whether a violation of the curfew ordinance or the State of Mississippi Executive Order 1466, the City is instituting a new warning and citation policy. Police Officers have been authorized to issue warning notices to operations in violation of crowd density and social distancing restrictions. Those establishments issued a warning will be posted on the city of Louisville's website. Police officers are authorized to issue citations, that include a fine up to $300 and/or jail time, up to six months for each offense. First offense shall be for the on- premises manager or supervisor. Second offense violations shall apply to the managers, supervisors, property owners, head of household, and all patrons on the premises.
