Gov. Edwards: Louisiana will remain in Phase 2

BATON ROUGE, La. (KSLA) - La. Governor John Bel Edwards has decided not to allow Louisiana to enter into the less-restrictive Phase 3 of reopening the economy.

“This remains a very contagious disease,” Edwards said during Monday’s news conference. It only takes a few people to change the state’s trajectory.

As of Monday, June 22, there were 50,239 confirmed cases and 3,004 deaths.

Between 25 and 30% of people who have COVID-19 have not been tested.

It’s still a very serious situation.
