Governor John Bel Edwards is stating somewhat emphatically that Louisiana is nearing a Corona-crisis. He says the state now has the 3rd fastest-growing COVID-19 caseload in the United States and could get much worse before it gets better.
Gov. John Bel Edwards has issued a stay at home order for Louisianians during a Sunday afternoon press conference. Trips to the grocery store, convenience store, pharmacy and pick-up by drive-thru at restaurants are still allowed. Food delivery is also allowed as is making medical appointments.
The order, effective thru April 12, begins at 5 p.m. Monday, March 22, but Gov. Edwards urged citizens to start saying home as soon as possible.
