Overall, Louisiana’s percent positivity for COVID-19 tests is 5 percent, the state has completed more than 6 million COVID tests and administered more than 1 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Having lost nearly 10,000 Louisianans, it is incumbent upon all of us to do our part to help put this pandemic behind us and save lives.”
