Masks no longer required inside Jefferson Parish government buildings


Those who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear masks except in certain situations

METAIRIE, La. — The mask mandate to enter Jefferson Parish General Government Buildings has been lifted for those who are fully vaccinated.

Sunday’s announcement is consistent with Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards’ new order in consultation with the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH), and recent CDC guidelines.

This includes:

  • Joseph S. Yenni Building
  • General Government Building
  • Charles Odom Building
  • Jefferson Parish Credit Union
  • Jefferson Parish libraries
  • JPRD facilities
  • Alario Center
  • Jefferson Performing Arts Center (JPAS)

Those who are fully vaccinated no longer have to wear masks indoors except in educational facilities, public transit, correctional settings and health care facilities as regulated by LDH.

This is in addition to recent guidance that also eased restrictions on masks outdoors.

Individual businesses have the right to require masks.

Individuals who are not yet vaccinated are asked to continue to social distance and wear masks.
