NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – Starting Monday, August 23, Mayor Latoya Cantrell said the city will start implementing its new vaccine mandate, which requires business owners to apply for a vaccine card or covid test negative to each of their customers.
If they don’t comply, owners risk a fine or closure.
Alex Salas is the manager of Mother’s Restaurant on Poydras and says his staff follow the same rules as customers, and hopes the protocol will encourage more people to get vaccinated.
“A lot of customers have actually appreciated that we are doing this,” said Salas.
“They know they are coming and they can eat in a safe place.
There’s also the question of what the turnout will look like on Monday night, when the new Caesar’s Super Dome opens for its Saint’s first home game against the Jaguars in pre-season.
“As for the dome, some fans are going to say you know I’m just going to stay home and wait,” Salas said.
Salas says he likes Saint fans to choose Mother’s as their match day breakfast spot, but is unsure of what to expect with the vaccination mandate in place to start the 2021 season.
The Saints’ organization has remained committed to following the tenure, even teaming up with Ochsner to give fans their first dose of vaccine at the Dome on match day, which meets the requirement for fans to enter the tournament. inside.
Masks must also be worn inside the Super Dome, unless eating or drinking.
Salas says that no matter what the turnout looks like, the “Who Dat Nation” is going nowhere.
“Whether present or spiritual, the Who Dat nation will always be there to support our Saints. “
