Due to rising COVID-19 cases among city employees, Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs, Jr. has ordered that all Vicksburg city government employees wear a mask in the following situations:
- Regardless of vaccination status, Vicksburg city government employees who work inside a building must wear a mask in all common areas of the building such as hallways, bathrooms, breakrooms, and meeting rooms at all times, regardless of the presence of another person.
- Any time an employee is in the same room as one or more employees, all employees present must wear a mask at all times unless they can socially distance six feet away from each other.
- If there is more than one person in a city vehicle, all persons inside the vehicle must wear a mask at all times.
- Employees who work in a single office without other persons in the same office do not have to wear a mask unless someone enters that office. At that time, all persons in the office must wear a mask unless they can socially distance six feet away from one another.
Failure to abide by the Emergency Order may result in disciplinary action up to and including reprimand, suspension and termination.
