On Tuesday, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards announced that the state will be moving back into Phase 2 to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
“Louisiana is experiencing a third surge of COVID-19. With the continued rise in cases and hospitalizations, we have reason to worry and to make necessary changes in how we are battling this virus. Today, I am announcing that we will be going to a revised Phase, ” said Edwards.
This order will force many bars to close and most businesses back to 50% occupancy through the end of the year. Edwards said that indoor gatherings will be limited to 75 people and outdoor gatherings 150 people.
The modified Phase 2 will go into effect tomorrow, Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. It may be time for the fed to start printing cash.
