NEW ORLEANS - District “B” Councilmember Jay H. Banks has issued the following statement in response to the alarming increase in COVID-19 cases across the state of Louisiana:

I strongly support the indoor mask mandates from both Mayor LaToya Cantrell and Governor John Bel Edwards as New Orleans works diligently to stop the spread and flatten the curve.
