When Does the Latest Mask Mandate Start for Caddo Parish?
Surprising absolutely no one, Caddo Parish has enacted a new indoor mask mandate inside of parish-owned facilities that will go into effect on Monday, August 2, 2021.
Caddo Parish Administrator Dr. Woodrow Wilson, Jr. says, 'Safety is our top priority as we continue to battle COVID-19. We want to be as proactive as possible in instituting measures that will keep everyone as safe as possible while conducting Caddo Parish business.'
The new order includes masking inside of all Caddo Parish buildings, Government Chambers for all Parish of Caddo/Caddo Parish Commission related activities, as well as the 8th floor of Government Plaza. The order will remain in place until no longer needed. Authorities say they will continue to monitor our progress with regard to COVID-19 recovery efforts and take guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, and other federal, state, and local authorities to ensure the safety of residents.
This follows the indoor mask mandate that Barksdale Air Force Base announced Thursday evening for all personnel and visitors alike.
