Out-of-towners asked to vacate parish

Article Image Alt Text

If this past weekend in Sabine Parish taught anything, it’s that many people are selfishly not taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously.

Those of us that live here generally welcome out-of-towners with open arms, but large number of boats heading toward the lake and large numbers of motorcycles were first noticed near the end of the work week and much like the pandemic, exploded exponentially over the weekend. Although the state parks along the lake were closed, numerous private facilities remained open.

On March 28, District Attorney Don Burkett posted to his office’s social media that he spent four hours driving around Toledo Bend and was greatly concerned with the number of extra people on the lake not taking the threat seriously and possibly spreading the contamination.
