Delcambre Mayor Pam Blakely has issued a declaration of emergency in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The declaration, which is similar to others issued by state and local governments over the past several days, is the first legal requirement in a case where government might need to take extraordinary measures.

The town of Delcambre's declaration does not at this time contain any specific orders, other than an order to the Office of Emergency Preparedness to activate emergency plans.
