Sheriff’s Update


From Sheriff Jim H Johnson

I have been contacted in reference to the auction at the Tupelo Furniture Market and the Mayor of Tupelo’s Executive Order. The Mayor’s Executive Order only applies to the City of Tupelo, not Lee County as a whole. Just as the Sheriff cannot enforce any city ordinance, the Sheriff has no authority to enforce an Executive Order by any Mayor. 

I would advise all citizens of Lee County to observe the guideline set forth by the CDC for social distancing and protecting yourself from COVID-19.  

Any concerns about the City of Tupelo or Mayor Shelton’s Executive Order should be directed to his office.
