Mayor in Louisiana admitted to hospital for COVID-19

News

CROWLEY, La. (KLFY) — In a statement this afternoon, Crowley Mayor Tim Monceaux announced that he has been admitted to a hospital for COVID-19.

“I have been under the care of my physician and in isolation at my home after I was recently diagnosed with COVID-19,” stated Monceaux in a press release. “Today, my doctor decided my level of comfort, care, and rest could be more fully managed within a medical facility, and he admitted me to a local hospital this afternoon.”

Monceaux announced last week that he had contracted COVID-19.

“I ask for your continued prayers and support for me and my family,” Monceaux continued. “I look forward to returning to working full time at City Hall and want to reassure the citizens of Crowley that the city remains in capable hands. City business is being conducted and we are well-managed and equipped to deal with any problems or emergencies that arise. In the event there is a need for the Mayor Pro Tem, Alderman-at-Large Steven Premeaux, to stand as my representative at a meeting or city function I am unable to attend, he is ready to assume the responsibility.”
