Mayor Broome Requests ATC Allow Bars to Reopen in East Baton Rouge Parish

BATON ROUGE, La. – September 28, 2020 – Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome has requested the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control ease restrictions on bars and similar businesses once the Louisiana Department of Health reports two consecutive one-week periods of 5.0% or less test positivity on its website, which is anticipated to occur on Wednesday, September 30. Once “opt-in” status is granted, these businesses will be allowed to operate under eased restrictions outlined in the Governor’s executive order.

"I am very pleased with the tremendous progress we have made in East Baton Rouge Parish since the pandemic came to our community nearly eight months ago," said Mayor Broome. "Let us all continue to be vigilant in our fight against the coronavirus by wearing masks and practicing social distancing. United we can protect our health and economy."

As outlined in the Governor's executive order, stricter restrictions can and will resume if there are two consecutive one-week periods of 10.0% test positivity reported on the Louisiana Department of Health's website.
