On Sunday, March 22, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards issued a stay-at-home order to combat coronavirus spread. The order requires Louisiana residents to shelter-at-home unless going out for essential tasks effective until April 12. Many attractions, concerts, events, and festivals have either been postponed or canceled activities until that time. Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou will work to communicate updates on events and attractions openings as they become available.
