The fist case of coronavirus in East Baton Rouge was confirmed by Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome Tuesday afternoon.

“City-Parish and our COVID-19 healthcare partners are ready for this,” Mayor Broome said. “I want every member of the public to understand the critical role they play at this point – that is to follow the guidance we have been communicating and reiterating. It is vital that residents adhere to practicing social distancing and self-isolation if you have symptoms.”
