“Louisiana has made real progress in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, and our increased testing capacity and declining new cases have convinced Governor Edwards to finally begin Phase 2 of the state’s reopening. This is welcomed news for workers, families, small businesses, churches and every aspect of our society. We have a long way to go to reverse the damage the coronavirus has caused here, but we are a resilient people, and we’ll get through it together.”
