Since there is improvement in COVID-19’s outlook and a significant increase in testing capacity, Gov. John Bel Edwards stated Louisiana is ready to move to Phase 2 on June 5. That means more businesses will be able to operate at 50 percent capacity. The Governor’s announcement strongly recommends that people continue to practice social distancing, masks for public-facing employees, and increased sanitation. In addition, the state also recommends that businesses consider offering temperature checks before a person can enter and posting the symptoms of COVID-19 outside with a request that symptomatic individuals not enter.
Our commuters are a force multiplier for safety on the Causeway. If you are driving on the Bridge and see a vehicle traveling at an excessive speed, please contact Causeway Dispatch (504-835-3116 or *27 on a cellular phone). Dispatchers operate 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. Once a call is received, dispatchers will relay the vehicle information to the Police department.
By working together, public health experts advise the spread of Covid-19 can be stopped or greatly reduced. The same can be said for slowing down the rates of speeders on the Causeway Bridge. We are stronger together than we are as individuals.
