Local News

As the state counts down to the Governor’s stay at home order, people in the Capital City are making last minute runs.

“I have food, I’m good making sure my parents are straight so I’m good” said Gabrielle Weatherspoon.

“I’m pretty sure I have everything.”

Sunday, the Governor announced the order will take effect Monday and last until April 13th, if not longer.

“I expected and knew it was coming. It was just a matter of when.”

Ginger Thibodeaux said, she’s aware of the order and will also adhere to the governor’s plea

“Let’s be good neighbors, let’s be good Louisianans” said Edwards at Sunday’s news conference.

“Where I live in the retirement community, most of the ladies where I live are 80-years-old. They don’t drive, they can’t get out so I’m going to have to go check on them even if it’s just through the door” said Thibodeaux

As shoppers load up and the state prepares for a new norm, people say, they’ll continue doing their part.

“I’ll do the best I can.”
“I think I have everything I need.”
