Mayor Lumumba concerned about State Fair, says it puts city in ‘uniquely dangerous position’

September 17, 2020, WLBT, Magee Wade – Mayor Lumumba has worked with his coronavirus task force to monitor cases of COVID-19 in making decisions on executive orders.Mayor Lumumba said, “I certainly will extend it. Whether there may be some modification to it is another question, and I have to talk with our city attorney and, you know, just reach out to a few more experts that we depend on in the process.”With the State Fair set to begin in a little over two weeks, Mayor Lumumba is concerned. “I don’t fully know what our response will be but that I want all of our residents to be concerned and vigilent about is that there appears to be the making of the fair still coming to Jackson. That puts us in a uniquely dangerous position.”
