A day after Governor John Bel Edwards announced the extension of the Stay-At-Home Order for the state of Louisiana until May 15, Vermilion Parish Sheriff Mike Couvilon announces the lifting of the curfew that's been set for the rural areas of the Parish, effective May 1.

In a press release, he does advise citizens to check with their local municipalities to confirm whether their local government is following this announcement. Sheriff Couvilion says not to confuse municipal curfews with his curfew.
