LDH says Louisiana should suspend all extracurricular activities

Things could change very soon for students across the country. The Louisiana Department of Health recommends the suspension of Everyone after-school activities that students participate in as we deal with rising Covid numbers.

However, this recommendation misses the mandate to end all extracurricular activities in schools.

What does the LDH recommend?

After-school activities include all sporting events, cheerleading, band, music, and theater events, and all after-school social activities such as dancing.

The LDH also urges school officials to require masks both indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not an option.

State epidemiologist Theresa Sokol says if “preventive measures are not followed, outbreaks could force school closings”.

At the moment it looks like each school district will decide for itself what to do. So far, no announcements have been made about the plans at the local schools.

12,467 new #COVID cases have been reported to the state since Wednesday. That’s a new one-day record – beating Tuesday’s record. This positivity rate is out of 54,374 tested.
