SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — On Monday, July 6, Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins mandated that people must wear masks when entering the city’s businesses.

The mandate that goes into effect at 5 p.m. Wednesday is because the city has experienced an alarming uptick in COVID-19 hospitalizations, the mayor said during a news conference Monday afternoon.

Joining the mayor for the news conference at Government Plaza was Martha Whyte, the state Office of Public Health’s medical director for Northwest Louisiana.

Mayor Perkins is holding a press conference to provide an update on the City of Shreveport’s pandemic response. He will be joined by Dr. Martha Whyte from the Office of Public Health.
