Gov. Edwards has extended the Modified Phase 2 Order until February 10th and recommends limited exposure to others outside of your household due to the high community spread over the holidays.
The parish's percent positivity over 5% will continue to affect stand-alone bars. Stand-alone bars are called to close to indoor consumption, can allow outdoor seating up to 50 people, seated and spaced out and masks mandated.
