Mayor Fisher Relaxes Temporary Signage Regulations for Businesses During COVID-19 Crisis

Clinton Mayor Phil Fisher has relaxed  restrictions on temporary sign, banners, tents and ribbon flags for Clinton businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Businesses in Clinton that are providing online, carryout, delivery and curbside services may utilize these additional marketing tools to promote their operations during this emergency.

Businesses needing additional information regarding the relaxation of temporary signage rules may call the Community Development office at 6012-924-2256. Once the emergency declaration ends, all regulations will be strictly enforced.

While these restrictions on temporary signage are lifted to provide additional support to our business community, City officials encourage residents to avoid making unnecessary trips to the store and public spaces.

Together we can flatten the curve. Please continue to follow Health Department instructions to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

City officials encourage all residents and businesses to continue to follow Health Department guidelines for social distancing and adherence to the Executive Order from Governor Reeves on March 24, 2020.

Preventive measures Mississippians can take include the following:

  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, especially after coughing or sneezing, blowing your nose, and using the bathroom. Effective handwashing takes about 20 seconds, and includes cleaning under fingernails, between fingers, and washing the back of hands as well as the front.
  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with anyone who is ill.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. When possible, cough, sneeze or blow your nose into a tissue, and throw the tissue away.
  • If you are sick, especially with shortness of breath, severe cough, fever or severe chest pain, call a doctor or healthcare provider for instructions on being safely examined.
  • Avoid social gatherings where 10 people or more would come into close contact.
  • Practice social distancing: stay at least six feet apart from others in a group.
