Watch The Governor’s Daily COVID Update Here
Governor John Bel Edwards will be giving his daily COVID-19 update today at 2:30 pm. According to the Louisiana Department of Health, Louisiana currently has 10,297 cases of coronavirus. In Caddo, there are currently 377 cases with 10 deaths.
Yesterday, Edwards officially extended his 'Stay at Home' mandate until April 30th. The Governor issued the following statement on his website and social media pages:
Today, I formally extended the Stay at Home order until April 30 as Louisiana works to slow the spread of COVID-19. It is absolutely critical that each Louisianan take this Stay at Home order seriously. Act as if your life depends on it – because it does.
We have seen federal modeling data that shows that Louisiana could see more than 1,800 deaths by August. It doesn’t have to be that way. By working together, we can help flatten the curve in Louisiana, but we need all of our people to comply with the order.
The order means you still cannot gather in groups of more than 10 people. Frankly, you shouldn’t be gathering in groups at all. I’d love to see that Louisiana ingenuity put to use in finding ways to connect without being physically together.
We all need to Stay at Home, Stop the Spread and Save Lives.
