At the top of everyone's mind is COVID-19, the coronavirus that the World Health Organization has labeled as a global pandemic

With international implications, the virus is affecting communities close to home and has invaded our businesses and life at home.  As such, we have been monitoring news about the disease and are considering the existing and potential impacts on Louisiana's franchised new car and truck dealers.  This LADA page will serve as your online information center where we will periodically update our members on COVID-19.
