Lafayette Parish-Wide Curfew for Unaccompanied Minors to be Lifted Tonight

From Lafayette Consolidated Government:


The parish-wide curfew issued on March 16, 2020, for unaccompanied minors will be lifted effective 8:00 p.m. Thursday, May 28, 2020. The curfew was put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus.


Lafayette Parish is experiencing fewer COVID-19 cases.

“After consulting with the Sheriff, our Police and Fire Chiefs, and Lafayette Parish Mayors, I’ve determined the nightly curfew is no longer necessary,” Mayor-President Josh Guillory said.


Although the situation continues to improve, Mayor-President Guillory encourages citizens to take the necessary steps to stay safe – wash hands frequently, remain home when sick, and wear a mask when social distancing isn’t possible.


Citizens experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can call 311, option 1 or 337-534-TEST to get information about COVID-19 testing sites in the parish.
