Many people have mixed emotions about the Mask mandate that went into effect for Louisiana early this Monday morning starting at 12:01 a.m.
Before mask-wearing varied while we were out and about but now it is required while being in the public.
News 15’s Cassie Schirm went out today to see if people are following the mandate and their thoughts on the new requirement.
What she found was almost everyone was wearing masks in businesses whether they were for masks or not.
