Jay Dardenne on Virus: Lots of Hope but No Timetable [VIDEO]
Louisiana's Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the Governor's recent "roundtable" discussion of the Coronavirus and citizen reaction to the statewide "stay-at-home" order.
"The most important thing, long term, is going to be, obviously, that we see fewer cases," Dardenne says, referring to a possible light at the end of the tunnel. "At some point it's going to plateau and it's going to level off (because) that's what we've seen internationally. Hopefully, we're moving toward that point. But this is a very critical week."
The Commissioner also talks about Monday night's "roundtable" discussion, featuring Governor Edwards and various state department heads. From katc.com:
"Topics of discussion included the latest on positive cases in Louisiana, state testing for COVID-19, and the resources available for businesses and employees impacted by the virus.
There was discussion on how the K-12 and higher education systems are responding. Information and resources for at-home learning and mental health help."
The Edwards "stay-at-home" order, which began Monday at 5pm, will be in place for all Louisiana residents until April 12.
