Mask Mandate is Loosened

On Tuesday, Governor John Bel Edwards relaxed the statewide mandate that everyone wear a mask to fight COVID-19.  However there are still many places where a mask is still required.

Here is the Governor’s statement on the new mandate:  Following months of sustained improvement in COVID hospitalizations and an increase in the supply and availability of vaccines, some mitigation measures will be eased starting Wednesday, April 28. The statewide mask mandate will be lifted but masks will still be mandated for specific settings.
