Governor announces looser COVID-19 restrictions for state

Gov. John Bel Edwards

Louisiana will shift into a less restrictive set of rules to help control the spread of COVID-19 after the current executive order expires Wednesday, Gov. John Bel Edwards said Tuesday.

The new regulations, which will remain in effect for 28 days, are similar to the Phase 3 White House-approved restrictions that were in place in the fall. Edwards said he was confident the state was ready to make the change, but he urged residents to continue taking precautions to control the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and to get vaccinated against the illness as soon as they are able.

TeamLocal musician’s work discovered by UFC fighterPeyton

If you’re an aspiring artist, writer or musician, any kind of publicizing of your works is extremely exciting. One local musician had this dream realized when a UFC fighter took an interest in his song, “Underdog.”

Peyton Long, aka P-Moneyy, of Pleasant Hill is the creator of “Underdog.” He has been creating music off and on for about nine years, but has gotten more consistent in the last few years. His style is influenced by other Louisiana natives such as Kevin Gates, Boosie and Lil Wayne and he has taught himself how to mix and record his music. He started out recording in his homemade studio and released projects throughout his high school career, but his operation has grown and made several connections in the music industry. He has also been in the U.S. Navy for around 8-9 years and is currently stationed in Jacksonville, Fla.

Group of La. legislators call for end to COVID-19 restrictions

Group of La. legislators call for end to COVID-19 restrictions

Louisiana state Rep. Rick Edmonds, R-Baton Rouge.

(The Center Square) — A group of Louisiana legislators is asking Gov. John Bel Edwards to lift rules meant to control the spread of COVID-19.

Rep. Rick Edmonds, a Baton Rouge Republican, sent the Democratic governor a letter making the request, which is endorsed by 33 Republicans, including 3o members of the state House and three state senators. The Louisiana Legislature has 144 members.

Edwards issued an executive order this week that loosened the state’s COVID-19 restrictions, but businesses and events still are under capacity limitations and a statewide mask mandate remains in place. Meanwhile, the governors of Texas and Mississippi announced this week they would lift all COVID-19 mitigation measures in their states.
