After Improvement in Hospitalizations, Case Counts, LA Moves to Phase 3

Following almost six weeks of improvements in Louisiana’s COVID case counts and a sustained decrease in COVIDrelated hospitalizations, Gov John Bel Edwards announced today that Louisiana will move forward to Phase 3. This will bring most COVID restrictions back to where they were last September. Louisiana’s statewide mask mandate, which has been in place since last July, will remain in place. The Governor’s new order will last for 28 days and will expire March 31, 2021.

Overall, Louisiana’s percent positivity for COVID-19 tests is 5 percent, one third of the positivity rate six weeks ago. The state has completed more than 6 million COVID tests and administered more than 1 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Hunter Mannies Steps Down from Krewe of Demeter Responsibilities

Hunter Mannies Steps Down from Krewe of Demeter Responsibilities

DeSoto, it’s been an amazing ride! As of last week, Hunter Mannies, has stepped down and resigned as Captain and President of the Board of the Krewe of Demeter.

Three, almost four, years ago Mannies took the reigns of the Krewe with a vision and honestly little else. Demeter was lacking in number and support. In just over three years it has grown into one of the larger Krewes in the Northwest Louisiana Mardi Gras Association. Demeter has quadrupled their numbers and their presence in the parish and Northwest Louisiana.

Edwards Requests Major Disaster Declaration from Biden

Governor John Bel Edwards is asking President Joseph R. Biden to declare a major disaster for Louisiana due to the recent severe winter weather event. A system of heavy rains, wintry precipitation, and freezing temperatures began moving across Louisiana on February 11, 2021, and a second, similar system, followed on February 17, 2021. The impacts of the wintry precipitation and low temperatures, some of the lowest ever recorded in the region, posed a serious threat to the lives and property of the people of Louisiana. The freezing temperatures resulted in outages to nearly 100 water systems, impacting roughly one-quarter of the Louisiana population. Also, more than 200-thousand people suffered power outages. The state was forced to close roads across the in each region, limiting travel for business and limiting some of the initial emergency response due to the dangerous conditions.

She has always been an exemplary employee, however the past year of COVID-19 has presented it’s own new challenges in the field of health.
