Many residents in Acadiana believe leaders are making the right call to cancel events and closing public buildings amid COVID-19 concerns.

One family business is hopeful the pandemic will not impact more lives or business.

Mica Ceasar serves up the five dollar box at CTM crawfish.

"We sell out every day. Every day we sell out and we stay pretty busy," Ceasar said.

It's a family affair, boiling and parting---trying to keep a sense of normalcy amid the coronavirus scare.

"We make sure we're sanitizing, washing hands. We pick it up hot and fresh out of the water. We bag it up, seal it up and get it out to you," said Ceasar.

Darrell Ceasar said, "If you are sick or you're feeling ill. Quarantine, quarantine, quarantine. Make sure you wash your hands 20 seconds. Sing your ABC's that's all it takes. You're done. Let's keep it under control."

CTM Crawfish has not seen a decline in business. They're thankful the community is still supporting them through this pandemic.

"We support others. They support us. We just try to keep it going," Mica Ceasar said.

The Ceasars' know people are worried about their jobs and how life will continue as COVID-19 continues to evolve.

"I think they're doing the right thing by shutting things down to contain the virus. It's extra precautions because it's spreading like wildfire. We need to all stay safe out here," Darrell said.

At this time, there are no curfews or mandates for restaurants or other businesses to adjust their hours of operation here in Acadiana.
