Lafayette’s Parish-Wide Curfew Lifted for Unaccompanied Minors
“After consulting with the Sheriff, our Police and Fire Chiefs, and Lafayette Parish Mayors, I’ve determined the nightly curfew is no longer necessary.”
Those were the words of Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory in a press release today as he announces the lifting of the parish-wide curfew for unaccompanied minors beginning TONIGHT. The curfew has been in place since March 16.
This announcement comes as Lafayette parish is reporting fewer COVID-19 cases. In Thursday's release from the Louisiana Department of Health, for instance, Lafayette Parish reported six new cases since Wednesday's report.
"Although the situation continue to improve, I encourage citizens to take the necessary steps to stay safe - wash hands frequently, remain home when sick, and wear a mask when social distancing isn't possbile."
Citizens experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can call 311, option 1 or 337-534-TEST to get information about COVID-19 testing sites in the parish.
