Bay St. Louis Mayor Mike Favre on Saturday announced that he had signed an order extending the temporary mandatory 11 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew in response to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
The city initially enacted the curfew on March 21. With the latest extension, the curfew will now be in effect through April 23.
At a previous council meeting, city attorney Heather Smith told the council that, pursuant to Mississippi law, the city has to renew the curfew order every five days.
The curfew in Bay St. Louis is from 11 p.m to 5 a.m. each day of the week until further notice.
