TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The City of Tupelo will continue to require masks in public through mid-November.
On Wednesday, Gov. Tate Reeves announced he is allowing the statewide mask mandate to expire at 5 p.m. The public is still to wear masks in schools and inside close-contact business such as salons and barbershops.
Even though the statewide mask mandate is no more, some municipalities continue to enforce mask requirements.
WTVA reached out to Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton following the governor's announcement Wednesday afternoon.
Shelton initially confirmed the city's mask requirement will continue through the end of October. The City later clarified the mask mandate is scheduled to expire at 5 p.m. on Nov. 11.
Tupelo is not alone. The City of Starkville still requires masks.
Starkville Mayor Lynn Spruill tweeted, "The @COStarkville has NOT lifted our requirement for masks in businesses and public buildings serving the public. Our requirement was in place prior to the Governor's statewide order and it remains in place."
