Shreveport-Bossier COVID-19 update: Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has instituted a gradual reopening of many businesses with occupancy restrictions, enhanced sanitation, social distancing, personal protection equipment and other appropriate protection measures necessary to protect the health and safety of the people in Louisiana. Although many businesses have been approved for limited reopening, some nonessential businesses will remain closed to the public. Before you visit a business, please call to confirm that they are open, and to find out what restrictions are being enforced.
Statement on COVID-19 and 318 Restaurant Week
How to Support Local Restaurants following 318 Restaurant Week
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards’ has issued an order that restaurants limit their operations to delivery, take out and drive-through/curbside pick-up only. 318 Restaurant Week was heavily impacted by the disruption and many of the participating eateries have curtailed their hours of operation or temporarily closed, but many are still operating and offering take-out, curbside, delivery and drive-through service. See the latest updates here.
Gov. Edwards has also issued a statewide "stay at home" order until April 12, requiring Louisiana residents to shelter in place unless going out for essential tasks, as one of the most stringent steps yet to stanch the “community spread” of COVID-19.
As organizers of 318 Restaurant Week, we encourage all consumers to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including the practice of social distancing. If you are an employee who is still reporting to work, remember that many 318 Restaurant Week restaurants are offering special services during these challenging times. Please consider making use of these options.
Shreveport-Bossier’s local restaurants are one of the greatest assets of our community and destination. 318 Restaurant Week and the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau will continue to do everything within our abilities to help this extraordinary community survive, recover and thrive.
