Acadia Parish Law Enforcement Agencies Issues Shelter In Place Order Effective 8PM Tonight

Posted: Feb 15, 2021 11:15 AM

Acadia Parish Law Enforcement Agencies, acting under the parish emergency declaration, will be enforcing a shelter in place order beginning tonight at 8:00 pm and ending Tuesday, February 16th at 6:00 am. This is a parish wide mandate for all municipalities with the exception of Church Point who has a 6:00 pm to 6:00 am order already in place.

Essential workers are excluded from this mandate but must provide identification if stopped by law enforcement. This mandate could result in citations being issues just as a curfew order.

This mandate is being put in place as roads are expected to worsen as the evening hours begin.
