Louisiana Legislature is in Recess due to Covid-19

Laws and regulations are changing rapidly. After the publication of this article they are subject to change. Check back regularly for updates.

As we come to the close of another week, the situation in Louisiana continues to change in ways that were not envisioned two weeks ago. As of today, the Louisiana legislature is in recess until March 31, 2020.  Acting on a bipartisan basis with the support of the Attorney General, the Senate and the House, Governor John Bel Edwards has issued various Proclamations addressing multiple aspects of state operations (links below) aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana.  A Public Health Emergency was initially declared on March 11, 2020 when Louisiana had 13 presumptive cases of COVID-19 with zero deaths.  As of this morning, there are 537 cases and 14 deaths reported.  25 of 64 parishes are impacted with Orleans having the predominant number of cases at 326 and 10 deaths.  The Governor has expressed concerns that the healthcare capacity of the state will be stressed in the next week and in Orleans and Jefferson will be overrun under some test models in 7-10 days.  The adverse economic impact is being felt already, particularly in the hotel and restaurant industries (e.g. Louisiana is projected to lose 65,000 jobs in the hotel and hotel support industry over the next few weeks). 

Based on the foregoing, the state is operating on a triage approach with a full focus on suspending or easing laws to facilitate a reduction of infections.  A listing of the various proclamations is below.

While the state has not yet ordered full shelter in place, the Governor has ordered the closure of all bars and casinos and allowed restaurants to be open only for carry out or delivery.  State agencies are currently operating on reduced onsite workers and there are discussions of contingency planning for further closures.

From an Insurance regulatory perspective, the Commissioner has issued only one Emergency Rule that pertains exclusively to health insurance.  We will continue to monitor the Department daily. 

The Department of Health is working directly with the Governor and its concerns are reflected in the Governor’s proclamations.

Because Louisiana was one of the first states approved statewide for COVID-19 business aid through the SBA, Louisiana Department of Economic Development is facilitating these efforts and providing guidance. Some of your Louisiana resident employees or contractors may be interested in information related to this, so I have attached links to the most recent information. 

Until the state reaches some stability, it is highly unlikely that any legislative action will occur other than as is minimally necessary to maintain operations.   Should this change, we will alert you.  The following contains links to state officials and/or agency sites of particular relevance.  Please let me know if additional detail or explanation is needed.  I will update this report weekly if not more frequently.

Louisiana Legislature is in Recess due to Covid-19

Laws and regulations are changing rapidly. After the publication of this article they are subject to change. Check back regularly for updates.

As we come to the close of another week, the situation in Louisiana continues to change in ways that were not envisioned two weeks ago. As of today, the Louisiana legislature is in recess until March 31, 2020.  Acting on a bipartisan basis with the support of the Attorney General, the Senate and the House, Governor John Bel Edwards has issued various Proclamations addressing multiple aspects of state operations (links below) aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana.  A Public Health Emergency was initially declared on March 11, 2020 when Louisiana had 13 presumptive cases of COVID-19 with zero deaths.  As of this morning, there are 537 cases and 14 deaths reported.  25 of 64 parishes are impacted with Orleans having the predominant number of cases at 326 and 10 deaths.  The Governor has expressed concerns that the healthcare capacity of the state will be stressed in the next week and in Orleans and Jefferson will be overrun under some test models in 7-10 days.  The adverse economic impact is being felt already, particularly in the hotel and restaurant industries (e.g. Louisiana is projected to lose 65,000 jobs in the hotel and hotel support industry over the next few weeks). 

Based on the foregoing, the state is operating on a triage approach with a full focus on suspending or easing laws to facilitate a reduction of infections.  A listing of the various proclamations is below.

While the state has not yet ordered full shelter in place, the Governor has ordered the closure of all bars and casinos and allowed restaurants to be open only for carry out or delivery.  State agencies are currently operating on reduced onsite workers and there are discussions of contingency planning for further closures.

From an Insurance regulatory perspective, the Commissioner has issued only one Emergency Rule that pertains exclusively to health insurance.  We will continue to monitor the Department daily. 

The Department of Health is working directly with the Governor and its concerns are reflected in the Governor’s proclamations.

Because Louisiana was one of the first states approved statewide for COVID-19 business aid through the SBA, Louisiana Department of Economic Development is facilitating these efforts and providing guidance. Some of your Louisiana resident employees or contractors may be interested in information related to this, so I have attached links to the most recent information. 

Until the state reaches some stability, it is highly unlikely that any legislative action will occur other than as is minimally necessary to maintain operations.   Should this change, we will alert you.  The following contains links to state officials and/or agency sites of particular relevance.  Please let me know if additional detail or explanation is needed.  I will update this report weekly if not more frequently.
