Mardi Gras will not see 2021 due to the spiking levels of coronavirus infestations flooding the United States, Your Content has learned.

That’s according to information posted on the city’s official website.

The site states: “Parades of any kind will not be permitted this year because large gatherings have proven to be super spreader events of the COVID-19 virus.”
