Louisiana Restaurant Promise:
As the phased reopening of Louisiana's economy unfolds, the restaurant industry is eagerly awaiting the chance to return to what it does best - serving delicious food to you - our fellow Louisianans. During this time, we need to ensure that we are not contributing to the spread of COVID-19.
As a result, we created the Louisiana Restaurant Promise. This is a promise of reciprocity between the restaurant and you - members of our community.
open safely program:
Louisiana's State Fire Marshal’s Office and Dept. of Health created OpenSafely.la.gov to assist businesses with safely resuming operations as the public health emergency due to COVID-19 continues. Learn what phase your business is considered; what phase the state is in as Louisiana moves through the phases; and what social distancing and sanitation guidelines are required for their specific operation in each phase.
