Governor John Bel Edwards says he is cautiously optimistic the state will be able to enter phase two of reopening in the first week of June.

During his radio show Wednesday, Governor Edwards said moving into the next phase of opening the state is contingent on how case data trends in the next week.

Louisiana entered the first phase on Friday, and the number of daily new coronavirus cases has stayed relatively low in the past week, but Edwards said it would take one to two weeks to know whether the state will see a spike in new cases.

The news comes as the number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients dipped below 1,000 statewide.
