A new report from Harvard University's Global Health Institute is listing Louisiana among 13 U.S. states it says should lockdown now to stop COVID-19.

Experts at Harvard released their study yesterday using a 7-day average of new cases per 100,000 people.

The Harvard report says Louisiana is among those who have reached a tipping point for uncontrolled spread and must use stay-at-home orders or advisories to mitigate the virus.

Joining Louisiana in the immediate lockdown category are Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Arizona, Tennessee, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, Idaho, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.
