Gov. John Bel Edwards made several announcements during his coronavirus news conference yesterday.
More people have now been vaccinated against COVID-19 in Louisiana (received at least one dose) than have contracted the virus.
Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge will administer 7,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine each week, once enough supply of the vaccine is available.
And Louisiana will remain in modified Phase 2 for 21 more days, until at least March 2, when he says he is hopeful the numbers will justify an easing of restrictions.
