Shreveport Government Plaza to have restricted access due to disinfecting Aug. 5

Out of an abundance of caution, Government Plaza will be disinfected on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2020. During this time, employees will work remotely and there will be limited access to the public. This will not impact essential city services. 

Employees in two separate departments on the fifth floor recently tested positive for COVID-19. They were immediately sent home and their workspaces were promptly sanitized. Disinfecting the entire building provides an additional measure of protection for employees and citizens conducting business at Government Plaza. 

Citizens and employees are already expected to wear a mask and practice social distancing in Government Plaza. Plexiglass windows are installed at cashier stalls as a barrier of personal protection for employees and citizens alike. Additionally, appointments are required for departmental meetings to reduce building traffic. 

Government Plaza will resume normal operations on Thursday, Aug. 6, barring any unexpected delays.
