BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is holding a news conference at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1.
Mayor Broome says that after she signs an executive order, everyone will have to cover their face when they enter a place of business.
This policy is rooted in the common sense measures our medical community has agreed on. Masks do not stop the spread of the virus, but they do reduce the risk of spreading it to those around us.— Sharon Weston Broome (@MayorBroome) July 1, 2020
Do we wish to return to the days of a Stay at Home Order?— Sharon Weston Broome (@MayorBroome) July 1, 2020
Or do we wish to move forward? To open our schools, to gather with our loved ones again, to enjoy live music, and sports, and movies?
The news conference is taking place at the Mayor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness located at 3773 Harding Blvd.
