BATON ROUGE – On Monday, Governor John Bel Edwards gave his 2020 regular session remarks.
March 9 is the start of a new Regular Session, and Gov. Edwards had a lot to address, including the news of Louisiana’s first positive case of COVID-19.
“I have promised that we would be transparent about this and we will. Later this afternoon, I will be joined by public health officials for a news conference to answer questions. Now together we all—as a government, as health care systems and providers, as schools, businesses and as neighbors—must take action and be vigilant to prevent the spread of this virus in our great state.”
