  • The Mayor is going to make an announcement in 20 minutes concerning this. Most likely bringing back masks for now and giving warnings about the upcoming fests. We shall see.

      • As expected, indoor mask advisory.

        Mayor LaToya Cantrell has issued an indoor mask advisory in New Orleans as COVID-19 cases increase.

        New Orleans Communications Director Beau Tidwell said on Tuesday that New Orleans Health Director Jennifer Avegno and Mayor LaToya Cantrell are considering new restrictions as case counts begin to rise.


        According to NOLA Ready, COVID-19 cases in the city have increased by nine times in the past two weeks. Tidwell said if those numbers continue to climb, future events could be in jeopardy.

        "It potentially puts the progress we have made at risk but also all the exciting things that we are looking forward to this fall," said Tidwell. "Those things are potentially threatened by this spread."

        The city is urging residents to get vaccinated to protect themselves from COVID-19.

        Musician Sam Price told WDSU that he is already vaccinated and hopes more restrictions do not take effect.

        "It's definitely concerning," said Price. "I play music for a living, so my business has been shut down for quite some time. It’s nice to be getting back to playing gigs and now that might be threatened."

        Shirani Rea, who works at Peaches Records on Magazine Street, said her business will follow whatever guidelines are put in place by city leaders.

        "If that’s what we have to do, that’s what we have to do," said Rea. "My whole thing was not to worry about the money but to try to see how can we get out of it, how do we save lives."

        As of Tuesday, the city's average for new daily cases is 99. The positivity rate sits at just over 5%, which has doubled in a matter of days.

          • I think today's announcement answers the question of whether of whether there will be a Fest. As I said a few days ago, it's full steam ahead.

              I agree it's full steam ahead, but that doesn't mean there aren't still icebergs.
