Appointing authorities are strongly encouraged to identify and allow employees who reside in the affected area but who work outside of it to take annual leave (LA) to leave early, especially if their commute involves crossing the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.

All agency heads are responsible for determining those essential personnel who should remain on duty, report for duty or those who should report to alternate work sites as necessary. Officials continue to monitor conditions throughout the state, and this announcement may be updated. This office closure applies to all nonessential employees, including those authorized to work from home due to COVID-19.
