 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

Plaquemines Parish Lifting Facemask Requirements

Following sustained improvement in COVID hospitalizations and an increase in the supply and availability of vaccines, Governor John Bel Edwards announced that some COVID-19 mitigation measures would be eased starting April 28. The statewide mask mandate will be lifted, but masks will still be required for specific settings.  

Based upon the updated mask guidelines, Parish President Kirk Lepine will be lifting the mandatory mask requirements in Plaquemines Parish today, Wednesday, April 28, 2021. Plaquemines Parish would no longer require masks to be worn in Parish-operated buildings, except for those mandates specified by the Governor ( public transit, in K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and healthcare facilities). The updated proclamation will be in for the next 28 days. 

“Now that vaccines are more widely available, I am lifting the facemask requirement in all buildings operated by Plaquemines Parish Government,” he added “The pandemic is still with us, so I urge everyone to keep vigilant and to continue to follow safe practices. It is important for citizens to get vaccinated, be mindful of others, continue to practice physical distancing.”

President Lepine also stated that individual businesses and other government agencies in the Parish could make their own decisions and set their requirements. President Lepine asks all residents to respect the right of private businesses who wish to continue mask mandates on or in their establishments.
