Lafayette, La (KADN) – In a press briefing on Monday Gov. John Bel Edwards issued a mask mandate .Louisiana’s temporary indoor statewide mask mandate will stay in place until at least September 1, but may be extended if necessary.

Mayor-President Josh Guillory issued the following statement on Gov. John Bel Edwards Mask Mandate:

Governor John Bel Edwards has issued an indoor mask mandate for public places in response to the Louisiana’s status as having the highest incidence of the COVID-19 Delta variant cases in the nation. I strongly encourage our citizens to consult with their doctor to take all necessary precautions to protect themselves, their families, and our community.

Like our Safe Shop initiative in April 2020, we will have a detail of Lafayette Fire Department inspectors and Lafayette Police Department officers visiting businesses to ensure that owners and managers understand the current requirements under the governor’s order and have access to masks for their employees and customers.

I appreciate our healthcare stakeholders and urge our community to do what is necessary to stay safe and healthy.
