It’s time to show some love to New Orleans. After a windy visitor named Ida, the doors are open. We want you back. As the weather cools down, it’s the perfect time to check out the fall offerings of this great city.
New Orleans and COVID
According to nola.gov, “The City of New Orleans continues to meet all public health milestones and has fully vaccinated over 74% of all adults with the COVID-19 vaccine. However, only slightly more than 52% of all New Orleanians have been fully vaccinated.”
A mask mandate continues for all indoor public spaces, including restaurants, bar and clubs. These establishments also require guests to provide proof of at least one vaccination or a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours. For ongoing COVID updates from the City of New Orleans, text COVIDNOLA to 77295.
