Going to New Orleans Bowl or Prep Classic? Here are COVID restrictions you should know – The Advocate

There’s a lot of excitement throughout the Acadiana area after the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns and the Westgate Tigers’ football programs punched their tickets to New Orleans with victories this past week.

The Cajuns defeated Appalachian State 24-16 to win its first outright Sun Belt Conference Championship; they will face Marshall at 8:15 p.m. Dec. 18 in the New Orleans Bowl. 

While many UL fans still have fond memories of the Ragin’ Cajuns participating in the New Orleans Bowl, athletic director Bryan Maggard wasn’t…

The Tigers upset Edna Karr 27-20 to advance to the Class 4A state finals for the first time in school history. They will face warren Easton in Prep Classic at 7 p.m. Friday.

Both games will be in the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, where there are stricter rules than other Louisiana cities regarding indoor facilities and large social gatherings.

Here’s what you need to know:

Anyone 12 or older must provide proof of having received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken no more than 72 hours prior to entering the Superdome.

This requirement applies to all indoor venues, including but not limited to restaurants, bars, fitness centers, bowling alleys and indoor playgrounds.

Masks are required in Orleans Parish when entering K-12 schools, healthcare facilities and/or when using public transportation. Unvaccinated people over the age of 2 should wear a mask in public indoor facilities.

People are encouraged to avoid carrying their actual vaccination card on their person and instead are asked to keep a photo of the front and the back of the card on their phone.

Tickets to the New Orleans Bowl are $40 and are available at ticketmaster.com. 

Senate President Page Cortez, R-Lafayette, and an alum of UL, said he’s not sure if he’s going to the bowl game yet. His daughter is getting married and the family won’t be back in town until a few days before the game. But he does know that tickets have been offered legislators.

“It’s whether my schedule allows me to go,” Cortez said. If he does go, he’ll follow whatever COVID protocols are required by local government officials. “They have a right to run these things the way they want. I don’t like it, but they have every right to do it,” Cortez said.

This will be UL’s sixth appearance in the New Orleans Bowl. Beginning with the dramatic 32-30 win over San Diego State in 2011, coach Mark Hudspeth led the Cajuns to four straight New Orleans Bowl wins. Next was a 43-34 win over East Carolina as well as wins of 24-21 over Tulane and Nevada 16-3 in 2014.

The Cajuns also lost to Southern Mississippi 28-21 in 2016.
