Gov. John Bel Edwards extended his Stay at Home order until April 30, as Louisiana works to slow the spread of COVID-19, which extends the length of time that schools and some businesses are closed and continues limits on the size of gatherings.
On Wednesday, April 8, the number of reported cases in St. Landry Parish reached 86, with four deaths connected with COVID-19.
All pedestrian and vehicular movement is prohibited during curfew hours except for travel associated with fire, police, emergency, and hospital services.
