Do your part to slow the spread of Covid 19. Wear a mask, and practice social distancing and good hygiene by regularly washing your hands. Lafayette Consolidated Government is providing free cloth face masks to Lafayette Parish citizens while supplies last.
According to the Center for Disease Control, face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from unknowingly spreading the virus to others. The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in the same household, especially when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
You can also know your status by getting tested. For a list of test sites go to www.lafayettela.gov and click on testing sites or call 311. Testing is fast, easy and free. KNOW YOUR STATUS. USE YOUR HEAD, STOP THE SPREAD.
Beginning Monday, Lafayette Parish residents can pick up masks at City-Parish Hall and five Lafayette Public Library locations. There is a limit of one mask per person, or a five-mask limit if picking up for other family members.
Lafayette Consolidated Government is also requesting mask donations to extend its distribution efforts. Clean, sealed masks can be deposited in the donation bin outside of Lafayette City-Parish Hall at 705 West University Avenue.
