Mayor’s Memorial Day Message

Dear Opelousas residents,

The Memorial Day weekend typically marks the beginning of summer and along with that comes social gatherings, both at home and at restaurants, and trips to the grocery stores. Please make sure you practice social distancing, wear masks in public and wash your hands often. I ask that you not only do this for yourself, but for the safety of our vulnerable populations.

We are still not out of the woods so it is important that we remain diligent and continue to practice safe hygiene to be able to advance to Phase Two

Please be careful, exercise good judgment and stay safe. I also ask that you please take a moment this weekend to Honor the Men and Women who have died while serving in the military.

Mayor Julius Alsandor
