Meridian replaces mask mandate with "mask recommendation"

Officials also encourage residents to adhere to social distancing and hand-washing guidelines. “Our goal is to support our citizens and local businesses while helping to maintain the public health, safety and welfare of our community,” said Bland.

City officials are monitoring the number of COVID cases in Meridian and Lauderdale County and will continue to look at future mandates and recommendations based on current data.
