“The curfew is necessary because of the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths in St. John Parish,” Sheriff Tregre said. “The curfew will help our officers assure that the governor’s order is being followed for the health and well-being of all of our citizens, as well as help our officers monitor businesses that are closed so that these businesses may remain secure.”

Essential workers are exempt from the curfew and essential businesses are also allowed to stay open past the start of the curfew.
