Earlier this week, Governor Edwards announced that Sunday, March 14th will be declared as a Day of Prayer and Remembrance for those Louisianans who lost their lives to Covid-19. In Louisiana alone, we have lost 9,812 lives to Covid-19. While the vaccine is being distributed around the state and new groups become eligible each few weeks, we still need to stay vigilant to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
Please join me in taking this Sunday to remember the lives of those we have lost over the course of this past year, as well as praying for the families who lost loved ones in this time.
Below is the official announcement from the Governor.
