Official Statement from BREC Headquarters:
“As Federal, State and Local officials are taking additional significant measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana, BREC is closing all indoor facilities that serve the public as well as the Baton Rouge Zoo until further notice.”
Official Statement from LSU:
“As a precautionary measure, we are asking that all on-campus events and LSU off-campus events of 30 attendees or more be canceled effective immediately, through May 30. A decision about commencement will be made at a later date.”
Some HRPO programs may resume sometime between 6 May to 11 May. The decision will be made as that date range gets closer. In the meantime, please keep in mind that one can take part in the hobby of skygazing from home even in the midst of current restrictive measures.
