Yesterday in his daily briefing, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards told us he would later in the day be signing a bill that would extend the length of the Stay at Home order to flatten the curve of COVID-19, from April 15 to April 30.
The rules would remain the same, essential travel and workers only.
According to the one-page release, people can go to the grocery store, convenience store, pharmacy, restaurants for take-out, delivery or drive-thru, exercise and walk pets.
Edwards mentioned that this was the logical next step for the state since the numbers have recently risen above 9,000.
People should not leave their house unless they are providing essential services and not visit friends and family if there is no urgent need. The order will go into effect starting Monday at 5 pm.
“We need to be resolute, focused, determined and we need to beat this,” Edwards said. “We’re going to do it because we’re going to comply to these directives.”
