OFFICIALS ANNOUNCE TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF GOVERNMENT PLAZA
A Parish of Caddo employee who works at Government Plaza has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee has received medical care and is currently self-isolating at home. The Parish is working closely with local and state officials to identify the employee’s close contacts and provide necessary guidance to those individuals.
In an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of our citizens and employees, the Parish of Caddo along with the City of Shreveport and the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office will be closing Government Plaza Thursday, March 19 and Friday, March 20. Citizens will not be able to access Government Plaza at this time. This closure will allow for the disinfection of the facility. Essential staff from all agencies will be working remotely. Employees are expected to return to Government Plaza on Monday.
“During this time in our community, the Parish’s top priority is to protect the health and welfare of our citizens and employees. Taking these measures allow us to disinfect and sanitize our public spaces and make sure that they are safe,” said Erica R. Bryant, Assistant Parish Administrator.
“The City of Shreveport is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of City employees and to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 through our community, while maintaining essential city services. We will disinfect the building and work spaces before employees return,” said Mayor Adrian Perkins.
“Our administrative employees are valuable to us. We will do whatever necessary to catch up on the two lost work days in order to sanitize our offices. All essential services remain operational and we are there for you,” said Sheriff Steve Prator.
