Ascension notified to close bars after “exceeding 10% positivity” for two weeks

According to information received from the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control, Ascension has met the benchmark required to close and cease all on-premises alcohol consumption in bars effective immediately.

“In accordance with the Governor’s proclamation, any parish that opts into Phase Three but subsequently exceeds 10% positivity for two consecutive weeks, bars in that parish must be closed for on-premises consumption, unless and until the percent positivity decreases to 5% or less for two consecutive weeks” stated via email by Linda Pham-Kokinos, Attorney Supervisor of the Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.

  • Parish………………………………………Ascension
  • LDH Region……………………………………2
  • Percent Positivity……………………(10/22 – 10/28) 12.80%
  • Percent Positivity……………………(10/29 – 11/04) 12.00%

President Cointment urged everyone to remain vigilant, follow CDC safety guidelines, wear masks, and practice social distancing. “Please, I ask all residents to do their part in helping to lower our percent positivity for COVID-19 so we can reopen more of our businesses.”
