COVID19 Safety & Health Protocols

New Orleans remains open for you to visit!  In fact, most businesses continue to operate at 100% capacity both indoors and outdoors while upholding our citywide Modified Phase Three Plan.  With safety being the top priority for locals and visitors alike, this Plan requires the following to enter most indoor venues (restaurants, bars, receptions halls, etc.) in New Orleans:

  • All persons 12 years and older must show proof of (at least one dosage of) an approved COVID-19 vaccine OR present a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to entering said establishment.
  • Acceptable evidence of a COVID-19 vaccination includes:
  • LA Wallet App’s SMART Health Card.
  • An original, digital photograph, or photocopy of CDC Vaccination Card (both sides).
  • An official vaccine record issued by another state, a foreign nation, or the World Health Organization.
  • An official vaccine record issued through a vaccine clinical trial.
  • To ensure accuracy and safety at the highest level possible, only PCR tests are acceptable as proof at this time. Rapid tests are not permissible.
  • COVID tests and vaccines are available locally but turnaround times vary. Here are the links for a list of COVID testing + vaccine sites for more information.
  • All persons 5 years and older, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks indoor statewide.
