Avoyelles Parish added another death to its pandemic totals, raisng to 54 the number of COVID-related fatalites since March.
When the coronavirus reared its ugly, microscopic head in Avoyelles Parish this past March, there were those who believed they would be knocking and hunting eggs Easter weekend.
Avoyelles had what could probably be described as a "normal" update when the state Health Department reported the COVID figures for Friday.
An initial meeting to start a campaign for Bunkie voters to recall Mayor Bruce Coulon and Police Chief Scotty Ferguson will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
What would have been a very good daily update in Avoyelles Parish's battle against COVID was spoiled by one bit of bad news.
