McComb’s curfew has been lifted effective immediately, following suit with the Pike County Board of Supervisors declaration.

Mayor Quordiniah Lockley announced that the curfew was lifted Friday and said the action would be ratified at next Tuesday’s city board meeting, meaning there was no need for a special meeting concerning the issue.

The curfew was originally put in place exactly one month ago and closed the city down between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. every night since. The curfew was put into place originally to slow the spread of the coronavirus, but with the whole state slowly coming back to live, Lockley wanted to follow its lead.

Lockley said he has notified the McComb Police Department of the curfew being lifted as well.

Lifting the curfew is a bad idea, the numbers are just beginning to level off and show the cases starting to go down
