OPELOUSAS — St. Landry Parish government reminds its citizens that the juvenile and adult curfew remains in effect in the parish. The curfew is daily from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
With St Landry Parish experiencing some of the highest amounts of COVID-19 cases in Acadiana and now has more COVID-19 related deaths than any other parish in Acadian, the parish president’s office has decided to keep the curfew in place to match the Governor’s Stay at Home order.
As of noon Thursday, St Landry Parish was reporting 118 COVID 19 cases and 17 deaths.
Social distancing is now more critical than ever in the parish as the number of cases and number of deaths increase.
The St. Landry Parish curfew doers allow essential workers to travel to and from work or as needed to perform their duties.
The City of Opelousas has a separate curfew in place. Their curfew is daily from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
