BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome met with the media on Friday, June 26 to provide an update on COVID-19 in East Baton Rouge Parish.
Over the last week of June EBR has seen an increase in 326 new cases of COVID-19, compared to the last week of May when the amount of cases was only about half.
Mayor Broome continued to state that we as a community are not doing enough to slow down the spread, and we need to do a better job of following instructions.
“It’s very simple to just follow instructions,” Broome said. “Practice good hygiene, social distance and wear face coverings.”
Businesses also need to do a better job and lead by example. That need to ensure that all employees are wearing face coverings.
If you see a business not complying with health guidelines; by not providing hand sanitizer stations, practicing proper social distancing, and not wearing face coverings, you can report them anonymously by calling 225-389-8875 or online at brla.gov/covidreport.
