In Louisiana, there are no restrictions or mandates for mask usage or vaccination proof. But they are in place in New Orleans, so keep that in mind if you visit New Orleans or book a hotel in the city. New Orleans requires proof of vaccination or a negative PCR (72 hours) test to enter an establishment that serves food or alcohol. Our event will be held in a city right outside of New Orleans with no COVID mandates. We are following CDC guidelines and recommend mask usage and we will be practicing social distancing. We ask that if you feel ill, are running a fever, or show other symptoms please do not attend our event. Thank you.
