LA COVID-19 ON THE RISE - Governor John Bel Edwards is calling on Louisiana's employers to keep workers at home if possible.   But the Democratic governor Tuesday stopped short of tightening his current restrictions on businesses any further.  Edwards says he renewed the same coronavirus rules he’s had in place since late November because Covid-19 positivity test rates are up in every parish in the state.

"Without exception, every region in the state has a positivity that exceeds 10%, an increase in cases, an increase in hospitalizations, " Edwards explained.
