Jefferson Parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng announced Monday the parish will begin requiring face masks in public.

According to the announcement from the parish, patrons will be required to wear a face-covering in order to access businesses parish-wide. The parish president will sign an emergency proclamation, which is expected to go into effect Wednesday.

The news comes less than a week after New Orleans announced a similar requirement for those out in public.

East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome said last week that she currently has no plans to make masks mandatory.
