NEWS on COVID-19 in Louisiana:

BATON ROUGE, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Tuesday that Louisiana will remain in a modified Phase 2 under an emergency proclamation that will remain in effect for another 21 days, saying “the state remains in a perilous situation.” 

The announcement was made during the governor’s latest COVID-19 briefing as hospitalizations reach a new eight-month high. Edwards said there are signs the state is doing slightly better by some measures, but the number of new cases, hospitalizations, and deaths remain high. 

“It appears we’re starting to plateau, but at a very high level,” Edwards said, before going on to warn that things could get worse again if restrictions and social distancing are not followed. 

“If we insist on traveling and having those holiday-related activities and gatherings like we normally would, then we’re obviously going to be in even more trouble.”

Gov. Edwards announced a “step back to a revised Phase 2” on Nov. 24, citing a continued rise in the state’s positivity rate and hospitalizations amid what he called an “aggressive third surge of COVID-19 across all regions of Louisiana.”

The decision to maintain restrictions, which include a statewide mask mandate, was not unexpected, as the governor noted in last week’s briefing they would not be loosened. The only question going into Tuesday’s announcement had been whether he would tighten them further, which he decided against.

Under the continuing Phase 2 rules, restaurants, gyms, salons, casinos, malls and other nonessential businesses will have to continue limiting customer numbers to 50% of their occupancy rate. Crowds at churches will stay restricted to 75% of occupancy including for Christmas services.
