St. Tammany Parish balances health and economy


Joint Statement on Phase 2 Extension from St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper and St. Tammany Corporation CEO Chris Masingill

“Here in St. Tammany Parish, we have surpassed 2,000 positive COVID-19 cases. We anticipate that we will closely conform to the Governor’s extension of Phase 2 for 28 additional days. We want to balance the health of our community with the health of our economy. I urge all St. Tammany citizens to take personal responsibility to help mitigate community the spread of COVID-19,” said St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper. “Wear a mask in public, maintain physical distancing, and avoid large gatherings. If we all do our part, we can slow the community spread, and move into Phase 3 when these 28 days are over. We await the final details of the Governor’s order later this week.”

“As Phase 2 extends for an additional 28 days, we encourage all business owners to have employees wear masks when interacting with the public,” said Chris Masingill, CEO St. Tammany Corporation. “We also encourage any businesses who have not already, to visit opensafely.la.gov to utilize the resources available from the office of the Governor and the Louisiana State Fire Marshal. We want to resume operations in the safest ways possible and as the business community, do our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. It is important to note that the case growth cannot only be attributed to the increased volume of testing, but also to community spread.”
