Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has celled a Monday news conference to announce if the state will further open the economy.
"Edwards will hold a media briefing about Louisiana’s response to COVID-19," the announcement said. "As of Sunday, May 31, there were 39,916 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Louisiana, with 2,686 deaths."
You will hear the announcement live on WWL.com, WWL 870am, WWL 105.3fm and the Radio.com app at 2:30pm.
More clear evidence of the flattened curve includes the fact that for the first time in months, the state reported just single digits new daily deaths Sunday.
There were just six additional Louisiana coronavirus deaths reported Sunday.
The number of people with the virus in hospitals keeps falling too.
There are now just 678 hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Of those, only 84 are on ventilators. Both numbers are a fraction of their peak.
All of those numbers indictate no reason the state would not move to Phase 2.
Under the White House plan, Phase 2 includes some very important changes that would be big for Louisiana if the state agrees to the same rules.
