In the past 2 days, Lafourche Parish Government has been alerted to close to 50 new COVID-19 cases.
The majority of those cases came from patients residing in the northern portion of Lafourche Parish.
Lafourche Parish President Archie Chaisson told The Gazette today that in the past 48 hours, 29 of Lafourche's 46 new COVID-19 cases are from northern Lafourche residents. This marks a change in data from recent weeks.
At first, the virus was mostly condensed in northern Lafourche, then in recent weeks, South and Central Lafourche were hit the hardest.
