NFIB Statement on Governor Edwards' Mask Guidance

Date: August 02, 2021

NFIB State Director Dawn McVea released the following statement today in response to Gov. John Bel Edwards’ renewed mask mandate. 

“Our members are very disappointed that it’s come to this. The past 16 months have put a tremendous strain on Louisiana’s small business. Some businesses closed permanently while others have continued to struggle to keep the doors open. Owners have faced a staffing shortage, disruptions in the supply chain, and uncertainty about whether they can provide the goods and services their customers need while protecting everyone from this potentially deadly virus.

“Small business is taking the pandemic seriously, and we encourage them to follow today’s executive order. Our members understand that the sooner this virus is brought under control, the sooner we can avoid an economic downturn because of it.”
