BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks will no longer enforce a local mask mandate for Livingston Parish.

President Ricks says residents should understand that local businesses have the right to impose a mask mandate within their own facilities, and ask that residents to respect and honor those restrictions.

“This should help our local businesses that have struggles financially under the statewide mask mandate, I am excited that this is a step in the right direction in that we are moving closer to the future when we will no longer require masks in any venue,” Ricks said.

President Ricks also reminds all residents to continue to monitor and follow CDC guidelines, use common sense and be mindful and respectful of others.
