COVID-19 Update (Louisiana) March 26, 2020 at Noon

Since the last update of March 25, 2020 at noon, the number of reported Louisiana cases has risen from 1795 to 2305 at noon today (March 26, 2020). The number of reported deaths increased from 65 to 83. Since yesterday's noon report, the number of cases has increased by 510 and the number of deaths has increased by 18. Today, 676 COVID-19 patients are hospitalized. Of those, 239 require ventilation. If Louisiana’s growth continues this way and the State is unable to flatten the curve, the New Orleans area could run out of vents by the first week of April.

The Department of Health has identified COVID-19 clusters in six nursing homes in the state. The five the Department can identify are Chateau D’Ville, Chateau De Notre Dame, Lambeth House, St. James Place and Vista Shores. The Department continues to work with nursing homes to minimize the spread of the illness and protect residents and staff.

Washington Parish has six reported cases and one death. St. Tammany has 89 reported cases and one death. Tangipahoa has seven reported cases and no deaths.
