Also, during the meeting, Davis confirmed two presumptive cases in the parish, which have been submitted for testing.

The state of emergency lays out the potential effects of the ongoing pandemic, including the threat to the well-being of local citizens and the potential to exhaust local resources due to the excessive demand of public facilities.  The declaration is also instrumental in opening up federal money for such emergencies.

Town of Many Mayor Ken Freeman brought their precautions to a vote during the meeting, which was unanimously passed by the council.
