Additional measures have been extended to Monday's original statewide face covering order by Governor John Bel Edwards this week. In an aggressive effort aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, the new inclusions to the order are as follows:

  • All bars, including those with LDH food permits, will be closed to on premises consumption. Bars are allowed to provide curbside service.
  • Gathering size limits of 50 people or less in regard to all indoor social gatherings. The 50 person limit also includes outdoor social gatherings if social distancing of six feet or more is not possible.
  • Everyone in the state of Louisiana, 8 years or older must wear a mask when out in public.
