Businesses that fall under the Safe Shop policy in Lafayette can still pick up masks for their employees. There will also be a mask pick up locations for parish residents starting July 13.

According to Lafayette Consolidated Government, employees of businesses that fall under the Safe Shop Policy are required to wear masks.

Those businesses needing masks can call 311 and select option 2, Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Callers will need to provide a name and the number of masks needed. LCG says that masks can then be picked up on the following day, at the Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA) offices.

Safe Shop stickers can also be picked up at LEDA if businesses want to display it. LCG says that it is a good way to help ensure the public that the business is a "safe place to shop."

Lafayette Consolidated Government is also providing free cloth face masks to Lafayette Parish residents while supplies last.

“Face masks can play an important role in preventing the spread of COVID-19. I agree with the governor that a mask mandate will be difficult to enforce, but I am committed to ensuring our residents have access to masks. As always, I strongly encourage using a mask when social distancing isn’t possible," Mayor-President Josh Guillory said.

Beginning Monday, July 13, 2020, Lafayette Parish residents can pick up masks at City-Parish Hall and five Lafayette Public Library locations. LCG asks that those interested in obtaining a mask, please limit to one mask per person, or a five-mask limit if picking up for other family members.

Lafayette Consolidated Government is also requesting mask donations to extend its distribution efforts. Clean, sealed masks can be deposited in the donation bin outside of Lafayette City-Parish Hall at 705 West University Avenue.
