COVID-19 cases spike; Gov. Edwards urges caution

(The Center Square) – As COVID-19 cases rise in Louisiana, Gov. John Bel Edwards and the state Department of Health announced numbers of confirmed cases and hospitalizations on Tuesday that haven’t been seen since the beginning of the pandemic last year.

The news comes amid updated state public safety guidance and delegated authorities to local government leaders and school districts regarding mask mandates.

Edwards said 6,797 new COVID-19 cases were reported on Monday, which represents the highest single-day case count since Jan. 6. And 1,390 residents were hospitalized, he said. Only three other single-day hospitalization totals were larger and all of them occurred in March 2020.

“To see this current rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations is becoming increasingly scary,” Edwards said.

Compliance check finds 10 of 15 Many businesses sold alcohol, tobacco to minors

The Town of Many Police Department (MPD) routinely conducted compliance checks prior to the Covid-19 restrictions which are now beginning to lift. A compliance check is a tool used by law enforcement agencies to identify tobacco and/or alcohol establishments that sell to underage youth and to increase retailer compliance with Louisiana laws prohibiting sales to minors.

On July 2, the MPD team conducted 15 compliance checks at retailers in town and found that ten of the fifteen establishments sold to a minor who was working with the Department. After gathering the evidence, officers returned to the ten establishments and issued citations to the offending vendors.

Police Chief Cheryl Wooley stated, “This is not a ‘gotcha’ thing because we want to assist our establishments to work together to keep our youth safe, sober and successful.”
