The Louisiana Department of Health has updated its website to reflect the latest number of COVID-19 positives and will continue to update its website at noon each day.

Today, the Department reports 827 new cases, of which 609 came from labs that are new to reporting. These labs previously have not reported and are now reporting all their historic lab results electronically.

This means 218 of the 827 new cases came from the rest of the regular reporting across the state.
