SAFETY

Question

Any COVID specific rules at this party?

Answer

Due to the surge caused by the Delta Variant, we ask that all attendees please be tested within 48 hours of the event. We are more than happy to provide information on New Orleans testing locations. We will also be providing Rapid Tests, which we ask you use the morning before the wedding. We will find an outdoor location in the French Quarter where we will hand these out Friday the 29th. Please stay tuned on location and timing. This will provide an extra layer of security for those in the party with health concerns.

Question

Is everyone coming to this event going to be vaccinated?

Answer

If you are /not/ currently vaccinated, we ask that you do so before the event, barring any medical restrictions. With the rise of the Delta variants and the occurrence of breakthrough cases, it's ever more important that the people we love be vaccinated for their health and the health of those in their community.

Question

What if COVID gets bad enough again in Louisiana to shut down the party?

Answer

This is a possibility we are prepared for. Should anything happen, we will make sure to contact everyone and let them know. At this point, given the amount of time before the event and the vaccine rate in New Orleans and within our trusted circle, we don't think it's time to cancel this event.

Question

As of RIGHT NOW, What does the Covid situation look like in New Olreans?

Answer

We had a little bit of a peak post-Ida, which was also intensified by Labor Day weekend. However, things are looking up... or rather the graphs are looking downward. While you still should avoid doing things that could put you in the hospital, cases are projected to decrease similarly to the situation in San Francisco, due to strict laws on masking and new laws requiring proof of vaccination or negative Covid PCR test in order to enter bars and restaurants. But rather than trust me, feel free to look at current Covid statistics here: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/us/orleans-parish-louisiana-covid-cases.html

Question

What Non-Covid Safety Information should we know?

Answer

1. Bring mosquito repellent. The mosquitos won't be as bad as summer, but since it's still warm in New Orleans they will still be around. It's a swamp, and mosquito borne diseases have been reported here now and again, like many parts of the United States. The most effective form of repellant is DEET, feel free to check the CDC page for recommended mosquito repellants here: https://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/prevent-mosquito-bites.html 2. While this city is beautiful and full of generous, lovely people, it's also not always very safe. We suggest that Bourbon Street be avoided, and suggest you try local hangouts in the Bywater and the Marigny. Make sure you're aware of your surroundings, and avoid looking like a tourist (do not wear beads or carry large plastic drink containers) and you won't be a target for theft.
