The Warren County Board of Supervisors will be tightening its policies at numerous county buildings and other facilities in line with the governor’s shelter-in-place order announced Wednesday.

In a special meeting this morning, the Board agreed to amend its current emergency resolution in response to Gov. Tate Reeves declaration.

To be included in the amendment is an order to lock all county buildings to visitors. The county will continue to provide essential services, but all visitors will be required to have an appointment or special authorization to enter the facility in question.

Buildings to be included are the Board of Supervisors Office on Jackson Street, the Warren County Court House, the Justice Court and the Department of Human Services.

Additionally, the Clear Creek Golf Course will be closed for play, although course maintenance will continue. The public landing at Eagle Lake and rest rooms will be closed as well. Commercial fishermen with valid licenses will be allowed to continue fishing.

These changes go into effect at 5 p.m. Friday, April 3 and continue through noon April 20 unless amended.

The amended proclamation will be issued sometime later today. The Vicksburg Daily News will post copy as soon as we receive it.
