Edwards: Statewide Mask Mandate Likely To Be Extended

Gov. John Bel Edwards says not to expect the state's mask mandate to be lifted without more progress against the spread of COVID-19.

Edwards spoke yesterday about the mandate as he toured a vaccination site at LSU Health Shreveport.

Edwards said the numbers have started to flatten in the two weeks since it was implemented, but more progress is needed.

The current statewide mask mandate is set to expire on September 1st.
