A release from the USPS says that all Louisiana Post Offices resumed to normal operations on Saturday, February 20, 2021.

Operations were temporarily suspended due to recent winter ice and snowstorms.

The U.S. Postal Service apologizes for any inconvenience this temporary suspension may have caused our customers. We appreciate the patience of our customers during this time, the release states.
