OPELOUSAS - St. Landry Parish President Jessie Bellard has opted to allow bars in the parish to reopen after the Louisiana Department of Health reported COVID-19 positivity rates of less than 5 percent for the last two weeks.

Governor John Bell Edwards rules for Phase 3 reopening require parishes to report two consecutive weeks of positivity rates of less than 5 percent for bars to reopen. If rates rise above 10 percent, bars will be closed again.

St. Landry Parish has a 3.30 positivity rate for the week of August 27 and a 3.80 positivity rate for the week of September 3.

Bars are still required to operate at 25 percent of capacity or up to 50 patrons, table service only, and with a ban on those under 21 from entering. All service of alcoholic beverages shall conclude by 10 p.m., and bars must close by 11 p.m.

For a complete list of rules for Phase 3, bar owners should read the COVID-19 Phase 3 proclamation at gov.louisiana.gov.
