Since Governor John Bel Edwards made the proclamation that masks are mandatory on Saturday, multiple law enforcement agencies throughout Acadiana have dealt with their share of questions about what it all means.

In a press release from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, Lafayette Sheriff Mark Garber says that generally, they are just about informing and educating the public about the rules. Garber adds that they will help any business who has a customer that refuses to wear a mask and refuses to leave the premises of the business.

Lafayette Parish deputies will basically help a business owner if someone refuses to leave, but there primary role in all of this is just to educate people about the Governor's mandate.
