BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – “Since the Mayor took it a step further, we’re going to take it a step further as well.”

A new mandate requiring people to wear masks in East Baton Rouge Parish has Kendell King making adjustments at his restaurant.

“Have every customer that comes in wear a mask just so everyone is safe.”

Wednesday, Mayor – President, Sharon Weston Broome made the announcement — face coverings are now required.

“Today, I intend to sign an executive order to mandate face coverings particularly when residents are inside businesses” said Mayor Broome.

King is the owner of Cajun Cowboy, a popular restaurant in Baton Rouge. He said, if it’s an order, then he’s following the rules.

“In life you have rules and regulations so you just have to follow them and if you don’t follow them, there will be consequences.”

Just hours after the mayor’s order was given. King was already requiring people to wear mask inside and even added an extra safety measure.

“I feel like this would be good for us to have at the business so that way you can wash your hands, come inside and get your magical food” said King.

The order calls for people to wear the coverings in-doors  and king said, for those who don’t comply, he’ll meet them halfway.

“So if you don’t want to wear a mask, just call it in and say hey, I don’t want to wear a mask can someone bring the food to my car I’m in a white ford and that’s fine. But we’re going to have a mask on.”
