If you have watched a news conference with Governor Edwards or Mayor Broome lately, you probably saw Dr. Daniel Burch.
Dr. Burch is a sign language interpreter and his role has become even more important during the conronavirus pandemic.
Burch is the Vice President of Sign Language Services International.
According to Burch, there are not very many trained sign language interpreters in Baton Rouge.
Burch says, “with the interpreter services I feel like the deaf community is pretty well informed about what’s going on.”
A new sign was created because of this pandemic, the sign is coronavirus.
