Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard Governor John Bel Edwards issued Executive Order 168 JBE 2020 -  12/10/2020
Emergency

For more information contact: Prescott Marshall

Governor John Bel Edwards issued Executive Order 168 JBE 2020 which imposes more restrictions than set forth in his previous Phase 3 Orders. The current edict is being referred to as "modified Phase 2." Essentially, limitations on capacities have been made more restrictive. I have read the Order and submit the following outline for quick reference . However, I strongly encourage any business or organization to register and/or consult https://opensafely.la.gov/ for case specific guidance. THE ORDER IS IN EFFECT PRESENTLY AND CONTINUES UNTIL DECEMBER 23, 2020.


EXECUTIVE ORDER 1 68 JBE 2020 NOVEMBER 24, 2020

Businesses which must remain closed:

All places of amusement must remain closed including but not limited to those with amusement rides, carnivals, splash pads, water parks, arcades, fairs, festivals, indoor playgrounds , theme parks, and concert/music halls. However, Section B (5) of the Order provides that any such business may submit a reopening plan with proposals for occupancy and sanitization to the Office of State Fire Marshal which is authorized to permit the opening of the business. Nonetheless, the occupancy thereof cannot exceed 25%.

BARS AND LOUNGES

No bar, with or without a food service permit from the La. Department of Health shall allow for INDOOR, ON PREMISES sale or consumption of food or drinks. A bar may provide for takeout, drive thru, or curbside delivery of food or drinks.

A bar may be open for OUTDOOR service and consumption except that the outdoor capacity cannot exceed 50 patrons . Also, these conditions apply for outdoor services:

If the capacity is less than 50 persons, then the capacity limit is the maximum number of patrons allowed.

The bar cannot open before 8:00 A.M. and must close by 11:00 P.M.

There can be no walk-up service; hence all patrons must be seated at tables.

Tables must be "socially distanced," meaning spaced 6 feet apart.

No one can enter the area unless they are of the age to purchase alcohol.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, a bar may be allowed to be open for INDOOR service if it is in a Parish which has a percent positivity of 5% for two consecutive weeks under the data published by the La. Department of Health. IBERIA PARISH DOES NOT CURRENTLY MEET THAT CRITERIA; THUS, CURRENTLY BARS IN THE PARISH MUST BE CLOSED FOR INDOOR SERVICES.

If,and once, a bar is allowed to open for indoor services (the Parish meets the 5% threshold) , then the re-opening must be under these conditions:

The capacity cannot exceed 25% occupancy as set by the Office of State Fire Marshal, or 50 patrons, whichever is less.

The bar cannot open before 8:00 AM. and must close by 11:00 P.M.

There can be no walk-up service; hence all patrons must be seated at tables. Tables must be "socially distanced," meaning spaced 6 feet apart.

No one can enter the bar unless they are of the age to purchase alcohol.
