The New Orleans Police Department is rolling out their plans for the upcoming Mardi Gras 2021 weekend amid the ongoing pandemic.
NOPD says beginning Friday, Decatur Street will be closed between Dumaine and Toulouse Streets. Additionally, there will be limited access to Bourbon Street and Frenchmen Street.
All NOPD personnel will be in operation during this period, along with Louisiana State Police personnel on hand to assist NOPD in implementing this plan.
Officers will break up congregating crowds and will possibly ticket or arrest those who do not comply.
The new regulations will stay in effect until 2 a.m. Tuesday, February 16.
