COVID-19 Hotspot in Reserve LA02.jpg

Lydia Gerard, member of the Concerned Citiznes of St. John the Baptist next to her house in Reserve, LA. She is very worried that the toxic emmissions from the DuPont/Denka plant and others near by make her more vulnerable to catching the coronavirus. “There are lots of peoples I know that are being impacted. It is too many for this small area. It isn’t a coincidence we have a high death rate here.” She wants Gov. Edwards to force the petrochemical plants around them to bring down emissions, especially, the Denka plant.
