St. Tammany Parish is moving in the right direction. For the third week straight, our percent positivity rate has stayed below 5% — 3.10 % to be exact. This is a testament to our citizens, who continue to wear masks in public, practice precautions, and listen to the advice of medical professionals. As we see these numbers continue to decline, I am hopeful we will continue to see our continued sense of normalcy increase.
Early voting is underway in St. Tammany for the Nov. 3, 2020 Presidential General and Open Congressional Primary Election. Early voting runs from Friday, October 16th through Tuesday, October 27th at three locations: St. Tammany Parish Council Chambers in Mandeville; St. Tammany Parish Justice Center, Covington; and the Towers Building, Slidell. Complete details may be found at www.stprov.org . The Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana offers a guide to the seven constitutional amendments and one proposition on the statewide ballot. The guide is available for review here .
All non-emergency offices of St. Tammany Parish Government will be closed on election day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
I sincerely wish all of you a safe and happy weekend.
