BATON ROUGE, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards will lay out his plans Monday on possibly moving the state into phase 2 of reopening.

During his briefing on Friday, Edwards said the state continues to move in the right direction in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are doing better, but we still have a long way to go,” Edwards said.

On Sunday, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Louisiana rose to 39,916, while the number of people reported to have died from the virus rose to 2,686.

That’s an increase of 339 cases and six more deaths reported over the past 24 hours, according to the latest numbers released by the Louisiana Department of Health.
