Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (D) held a briefing in Baton Rouge on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The governor announced he was extending his previous social distancing order through April 30, 2020, in accordance with the updated federal guidelines. Governor Edwards said the large increase in the state’s confirmed cases had mostly been a result of backlogged commercial testing labs. He also said that the state’s mortality rate was starting to fall more in line with the national average. “It is true, however, that we still have more than our fair share of people dying, and that is likely because we have more than our fair share of people who have the comorbidities that make them especially vulnerable,” he said. Gov. Edwards also said that a further announcement would be made regarding public schools, which he said would remain closed through at least April 30, 2020. close
