ABSTRACT

Louisiana Must Overhaul Its Justice System Practices to Respond to COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Louisiana is emerging as a hot spot at the center of the global COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. On March 22, Governor John Bel Edwards issued a statewide stay-at-home order. People are forbidden from leaving their homes except for the absolute essentials and are instructed to maintain at least six feet distance from others. As of April 9, 2020, there were 18,283 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Louisiana with 702 reported deaths. By the time this goes to print, already these numbers will be outdated. New Orleans's hospitals are already stretched to capacity."
