Since this past Friday's update, Avoyelles Parish had 46 diagnoses of COVID and another COVID-related death, the state health department reported Sunday.
A teenage boy who escaped from the Acadiana Center for Youth juvenile detention facility in Bunkie Thursday was recaptured without incident within a few hours.
Some may recall a comment during the early spike of COVID-19 that "if we stop testing, the number of COVID cases will stop rising."
It has been two weeks since Christmas Eve. There were those who predicted a spike in cases within 10-14 days of the holidays. Others pooh-poohed such talk as media-driven panic.
Avoyelles had considerably fewer test results in its Wednesday COVID update from the state health department, but had a high positive rate among those results.
