They also have information on help-lines. News about which jobs are considered essential during the Stay-At-Home order. Information on donation drives for medical gear to keep our hospitals supplied. Phone numbers you can call for emergencies or COVID-19 info or pre-screening services. Videos so you can hear things straight from the Chief Communications Officer or the Mayor President themselves. News about the library and how it’s operating during the pandemic. They have info on how to see maps with info directly from the Louisiana Dept of Health. Another useful tool is links to videos from the CDC in American Sign Language, so people can share needed information with the hearing impaired.
