I was notified that New Orleans icon Mamie Marie Burfict “The Queen Of Bourbon Street” has tested positive for COVID-19/Coronavirus by New Orleans Comedian, Geneva Joy Hughes via Facebook. Here’s what Geneva posted.
I’m asking everyone to pray for Miss Mamie Marie: The Queen of Bourbon St. She has tested positive for COV-19 but is asymptomatic. She is a very healthy 72! Send her your love and prayers. She is known for entertaining the world on Bourbon St!
She has been instructed to self quarantined and we should make sure she has everything she needs during this time.
I just talked to her and she is doing ok.

You can’t go to Bourbon St, French Quarter or the Dome without seeing this beautiful lively lady, Mamie Marie Burfict Mamie Marie: The Queen of Bourbon St. riding her bike that pumps out all the hottest New Orleans songs. She’ll jump out and dance for ya in a hot minute too. If you were lucky to spend a moment with her you would know how truly special she is. Every time I see her, she greats me with a big smile, a hug and a big dose encouragement. She’s the motivation behind my NOLA Chic persona.
If by chance you were with Mamie during and after the Mardi Gras season and you are feeling any symptoms no matter how minor I highly recommend that you self quarantine and get tested. It has been 10 days since Mamie was tested and she had complaints of a low grade fever, light cough and body aches. Mamie states Saturday March 7th was the last time she was out in public.
Marie is New Orleans though she moved here years ago, but she embraced the city just as if she was born and raised here. She goes out into the city to entertain tourist and Saints Fans without knowing if she will make any money as a street performer, but she does it for the love of New Orleans. I ask that you all keep her lifted in prayer and if you can afford a dollar or two please send it to her via CashApp $SilverFoxx1947.
She’s not as young as she looks and is considered one of the most vulnerable when it comes to this horrible virus. She’s asymptotic and lets pray that it stays the same.
Mamie is a good friend of mines and I feel worried, because of her age, but I’m trusting God will take care of her.
Thank you Mamie for your love for New Orleans!⚜️
