As percent positivity rates in St. Tammany Parish continue to decline, St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper thanks residents for their diligence and encourages citizens to utilize opportunities for vaccine availability.
“Our hard work is paying off. At 2%, we are seeing the lowest percent positivity rate in St. Tammany since October of 2020. In addition, beginning Monday, vaccine eligibility opens to every person 16 or older. I urge everyone who wishes to be vaccinated to take this opportunity to receive the vaccine,” President Cooper said. “As we continue to work together, I want to thank every citizen in our community for continuing to do what medical professionals recommend to slow the spread of COVID-19, as we work to balance the health of our community with the health of our economy.”
