Coronavirus Updates

Clint Cointment

Ascension Parish President

On Thursday, September 10, Governor John Bel Edwards announced that the State would transition into Phase III reopening thanks to recent slowing of COVID-19 infections. We have always followed the Governor’s lead on this, so I am pleased to announce that Ascension Parish also will be entering phase 3.

Even though restrictions are being loosened, we cannot let our guards down. The state facemask mandate is still in place, and we strongly encourage continuing to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus, such as washing hands frequently and practicing social distancing.

We will publish details of Phase III as soon as they are available. In the meantime, you can visit for the most current information.

If you have questions about COVID-19, or are looking for information or resources for you and your small business, there is a great deal of information at:

If you want to find out what is open and available in Ascension Parish, here is a great resource for information:
Stay informed, and God Bless.
