Louisiana Department of Health Suggests Suspending All Student Extracurricular Activities
The Louisiana Department of Health is recommending that all extracurricular student activities be temporarily suspended across the state.
In a recent tweet, the Louisiana Department of Health made a handful of recommendations in response to the current Omicron surge across the country and Louisiana.
The list of LDH recommendations lists things such as "universal masking indoors and outside when social distancing is not possible, avoid holding social gatherings such as dances and pep rallies" and more.
One of those suggestions is to suspend all student extracurricular activities.
At this point, these are merely suggestions and not mandates.
State Epidemiologist Theresa Sokol says if "prevention measures are not followed, outbreaks could force school closures" according to 710Keel.com.
