NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Following the CDC’s updated guidance for fully vaccinated people, the Lakeside Shopping Center will be lifting the mask mandate on its property.

In a memo sent to merchants on Fri., May 14, mall managers were notified that “each store and restaurant on property has the right to set their own mask guidelines.”

Lakeside says their security officers will no longer be enforcing the mask mandate as guests enter the mall.
