UPDATES AND INFORMATION DURING
STAY AT HOME ORDER/PARK CLOSURES:
As per the Stay at Home Order, which the entire state of Louisiana is now under, the City of Gretna has closed all public recreational areas such as playgrounds and dog parks. These closures and the Stay at Home Order are for the protection and safety of our community. This order will be in place until the end of day on April 12, 2020, in hopes of halting the spread of this virus.
Louisiana currently has the fastest growth rate of COVID-19 cases across the globe. We need to do all we can to FLATTEN THE CURVE. As your elected officials, we are asking everyone to heed this order and stay home unless you need to leave for necessary reasons such as food, medicine, doctor’s appointments, or you are considered essential personnel. The Stay at Home Order, directly from the Office of Governor John Bel Edwards has been attached below.
