Roommate, city New Orleans It has just been announced that all residents 12 years of age and older must be vaccinated or show a negative COVID-19 test to enter various public places, such as restaurants, bars, gyms, music venues, and sports venues. This makes New Orleans the latest city to take a firm stand on vaccination protocols and regular COVID-19 testing.
In a recent press conference, the mayor of Louisiana, LaToya Cantrell, stated announcement The City of New Orleans will officially crack down on its vaccination requirements starting on August 16.day“Look for your vaccination card and be prepared to show it,” she said, while also noting that a grace period of one week will be allowed before the new requirements are actively implemented.
The Mayor of Cantrell also emphasized that despite the continuous increase in the number of COVID-19 in the state, she did not impose capacity restrictions on businesses and did not consider the shutdown that occurred last year. Instead, she relied on residents to be vaccinated to maintain business. “Unlike this time last year, we have a tool we don’t have,” she said.
Louisiana is one of the hotspots for the Delta variant of COVID-19 in the United States because of the alarmingly low vaccination rate across the state, which is reported to be one of the most severe vaccination rates in the country. In addition, many restaurants and bars in New Orleans have formulated their own vaccination requirements, requiring a vaccination certificate or a negative test for COVID-19 within 72 hours before entry.
In addition to restaurants, bars, gyms, fitness centers and music venues, sports venues are also included in the list, including the Superdome in New Orleans, the NFL season is about to begin.
