Louisiana expands COVID-19 vaccination eligibility

(The Center Square) – Louisiana residents who work in a wide range of new job categories will be added Monday to the list of people eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Thursday.

Edwards said the change likely will be the last expansion of eligibility before all residents at least 16 years old are eligible. He said he expects Louisiana will get to that point before the May 1 goal set by President Joe Biden.

Newly eligible job categories include higher education, food and agriculture, manufacturing, grocery stores, transportation, water and wastewater, energy, bank tellers, construction, clergy, information technology and communications, media, public safety, frontline government workers, family service workers, veterinarians, waste management, security and emergency preparedness.

The Sabine Parish Leaders Against Litter met on March 15, 2021, after not being able to meet for over a year due to the pandemic. The period of March 27 – April 24, 2021 was set to get the deplorable conditions of some of our roadways, streets, public areas, and communities cleaned up.

Sheriff Aaron Mitchell and his chief deputy, Brad Walker, were in attendance at the meeting. Sheriff Mitchell explained that Covid-19 had impacted the inmate work program and all inmate crews were kept in the detention center off work detail due to the pandemic. They began picking up trash along state highways a few weeks ago, but it will take about 10 months to cover all state highways in the parish. The public is being asked to assist.

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.
