BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Ochsner Health is holding another briefing on Tuesday afternoon.

This one is going to include leaders from Ochsner Health and the 30 minute Zoom briefing is supposed to include “updates on Hurricane Ida recovery and COVID-19.”

Sections of Louisiana are still recovering from Hurricane Ida and COVID-19 is still around even if the storm has put it on the backburner so to speak.

The state passed 700,000 total COVID-19 cases over the Labor Day weekend.
