Gov. John Bel Edwards' latest proclamation, 117 JBE 2020, currently calls for indoor amusements like haunted houses to remain closed.

BUT the proclamation also allows for amusements like this to submit a proposal to be given special permission to open. Information on the requests can be found in OpenSafely.la.gov in the document for “Other Amusements”.

In addition, the State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFM) would like to remind operators about the regular life safety and fire safety requirements deputies will be looking for when inspecting attractions for approved occupancy, if allowed to open.

The entire list of requirements is spelled out in the attached document as well as pages taken from OpenSafely.la.gov regarding haunted houses.
