TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson said not much change is expected to come to the law enforcement side of the shelter-in-place order.
Johnson said the order is to help lead the way for people to understand that they need to use their common sense.
"You have got to get out of this box where this is about me; this is about protecting the entire county," he said.
The sheriff's department shared on Facebook its plan, which included Gov. Tate Reeves' executive order.
"It reiterates about what is already being said to do, what we can to not be out in public."
Other sheriffs like Ben Caldwell in Alcorn County have shared they do not plan to execute more traffic stops to check people.
Monroe County Sheriff Kevin Crook said that plans are still being put in place for his county.
"We keep saying use common sense. The scary thing about it is," Johnson said. "The lack of common sense is why we are doing what we are doing."
