After almost 3 1/2 months, and several delays, Louisiana is moving into Phase 3 on Friday, Gov. John Bel Edwards said today.
What was apparently an early-week "log jam" of new COVID-19 cases for Avoyelles broke loose in Wednesday's offiical update from the Louisiana Department of Health.
Gov. John Bel Edwards said today that may announce Wednesday whether Phase 2 will be extended or the state moves into Phase 3 of the COVID recovery plan.
With only 26 test results since the Sunday update, Avoyelles Parish had only four new coronavirus cases in the official report from the Louisiana Department of Health today (Sept. 7).
There were only seven new COVID-19 cases in Avoyelles Parish over the weekend, but another death was added to parish's pandemic total, bringing the official count to 1,327 cases and 47 deaths.
