New Orleans Keeping Virus Rules for Big Events

NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans’ health director says large events in the city will likely continue having to abide by mask mandates or requirements for attendees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus into the fall.

Dr. Jennifer Avegno’s remarks came at a news conference Tuesday as Louisiana health officials reported that infections are surging, largely among non-vaccinated people as the more easily transmissible delta variant spreads in the state.

New Orleans is looking ahead to the NFL and college football season as well as the return of major entertainment events such as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

The city currently allows major events to have full capacity if there is a mask requirement or if attendees are required to have either a vaccination or a negative coronavirus test.
