GLPC’S RESPONSE TO COVID-19:

The Greater Lafourche Port Commission and its valued tenant companies are taking precautions to keep themselves and others safe from the threat of COVID-19. The GLPC family is staying vigilant for updates and guidance from our parish, state, and federal agencies, and we strongly recommend getting information on COVID-19 from reputable sources such as the ones listed below.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay informed so we can all be READY TODAY, AND READY FOR TOMORROW.


A NOTE ON CYBERSECURITY:

As many organizations have implemented remote work-from-home and/or limited workforce operations during the COVID-19 public health emergency, it is critical that we stay vigilant online. Hackers are looking to take advantage of those who click without thinking for the latest “urgent news.”

Please be wary of emails containing links to “Breaking News” or other sensational headlines regarding coronavirus or COVID-19. If you have not subscribed to email updates from a verified, trusted source, it is best to refrain from clicking on their provided links.
