After no numbers were released on Saturday, the Sunday update from the Louisiana Department of Health showed 1,467 new COVID cases, bringing the total to 56,236. 96% of the reported cases for Sunday were from community spread rather than congregate settings. 43% of the newest cases are among people 29 years old or younger. Governor Edwards called on young people to take the virus seriously as 18-29 year olds are the fastest growing age group for COVID cases in Louisiana. 9 additional deaths bring that number to 3,086 residents who have died from the virus. Louisiana’s statewide 211 network is now answering calls about COVID-19 from Louisiana residents. Dial 211 or text LACOVID to 898-211 if you have questions.
