Thanks, John Bel! We almost had to think for ourselves.
Governor Edwards announced Monday that Louisiana will not move into the next phase of its reopening plan for at least another four weeks as the state reports a rise in new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.
During a news briefing Monday, Edwards said the state will not move into phase three at the end of the week as originally discussed, which would have further eased gathering restrictions. Phase two guidelines will be extended for another 28 days under the governor's latest proclamation, which will be officially issued later this week.
The governor said the latest data suggests that the state needs to do a better job complying with phase two guidelines instead of introducing new ones.
Fear is a four lettered f-word & John Bel loves it.
