Shreveport and Bossier Family Attractions
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards took significant measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana and has issued a statewide "stay at home" order until April 12, requiring Louisiana residents to shelter in place unless going out for essential tasks, as one of the most stringent steps yet to stanch the “community spread” of COVID-19. All non-essential businesses are closed through April 12, 2020. Operations may be able to resume on April 13. However, the situation will be reevaluated seven days prior.
We will continue to monitor the situation and announce plans to reopen when appropriate. For visitor information and updates, please call 318-222-9391 or visit www.Shreveport-Bossier.org.
