Clint Cointment

Ascension Parish President

The bad weather may be over but the pandemic is still raging outside.

As of February 22, there have been 8,802 cases of COVID-19 in Ascension Parish, and 132 of our residents have died.

I strongly urge everyone get the vaccine as soon as you are eligible. Guidelines and vaccine providers are regularly posted on the Parish, OHSEP, and Health Unit Facebook pages. Until then, and even afterward, please continue to wear a face mask or face covering, maintain at least 6 feet of social distance from others, avoid crowds and crowded places, and regularly wash or disinfect your hands and the surfaces you come in contact with.

By working together, we can defeat this disease.

As always, Stay Safe, Stay Informed, and God Bless.
