Louisiana Sees Its Largest Daily Coronavirus Case Spike since April

BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana is seeing its largest daily coronavirus case spike since April, during the height of the state’s outbreak.

Nearly 2,100 new cases of the COVID-19 disease were confirmed over the last day in Louisiana. Hospitalizations continued to tick upward.

The trend is concerning public health experts, who noted Louisiana’s once successful efforts to slow infections are being undermined by the public ignoring recommended precautions.

Baton Rouge mayor Sharon Weston Broome says she’s signing an executive order that requires people to wear face coverings when they are inside businesses.

“My message is simple. Save a life, save our economy and wear a face covering,” Broome wrote on Twitter.

New Orleans already has a mask requirement for nearly all activities in the city.
