Louisiana Governor Not Happy With Local Large Gatherings
Governor John Bel Edwards is not happy with Louisiana residents who chose to go against our state's gathering restrictions.
Speaking this weekend, our Governor admitted that these restrictions may be difficult to follow. Now, after reports of several large gatherings throughout the state after the restrictions were handed down, Edwards is begging LA residents to comply.
“I look forward to the day when we can all hug one and other again and we can dance and we can celebrate and get close like we like to do, but save that for later,” says Edwards.
Edwards says “It is grossly irresponsible for people to flagrantly disregard and violate these social distancing measures that we have in place across the state of Louisiana.”
Over the weekend, New Orleans police broke up a second line in New Orleans of about 100 people. Organizers of the now-infamous second line in New Orleans have been charged.
