Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and community partners addressed the public regarding the current state of COVID-19 in East Baton Rouge Parish Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. from the River Center Branch Library on North Boulevard in downtown Baton Rouge.
Mayor Broome said if compliance does not improve in the near future, reverting to Phase 1 is "not out of the question."
