From the office of Parish President Gordon Dove:
In order to continue to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in Terrebonne Parish, Terrebonne Parish President Gordon Dove has placed restrictions on the number of customers allowed in stores and operating hours of stores.
Beginning tomorrow, April 4, 2020, all grocery stores (Rouses, Cannata’s, etc.), pharmacies and big box stores (Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Target, Sam’s Club, etc.) will be limited to 20% of their Fire Marshal capacity and will only be allowed to be open for business from 6AM to 8PM. 24-hour pharmacies will be allowed to continue to operate after 8PM with drive-thru services only.
All other businesses are to follow the executive order 41 JBE 2020, dated April 2, 2020, and issued by Governor John Bel Edwards stating that essential businesses listed on his order or within the US Homeland Security CISA guidance document can operate as normal.
Only one person per family should go to the store or essential business and you should only purchase essential items. Now is not the time to browse the stores. Please go into the store, purchase your essential items and return home to allow other customers the opportunity to shop.
“We are trying to facilitate the needs of the residents and the business community. I will continue to monitor the situation and amend this order if necessary.”
