Incidence rate map

After the Louisiana Department of Health updated its incidence rate report to cover a two-week period, the entire state turned red except for three parishes — ˝rant, Red River and West Feliciana.

While everyone was focused on Gov. Edwards' press conference announcing a statewide mask requirement and the banning of on-premises consumption of alcohol in the state's bars, the Louisiana Department of Health changed its incidence rate map to cover a two-week period.

With the range expanded, Jefferson Davis Parish rose to the top, with 813.7 cases per 100,000 population. Iberia Parish was second, at 810.53, and Calcasieu in third with 766.6 cases per 100,000. Rounding out the top 10 are Madison, Acadia, Lafayette, St. Martin, Cameron, Catahoula and Terrebonne.

During his press conference Saturday afternoon, Edwards said that parishes could decide whether they wanted to keep the mask requirement in place if they met the White House standard of having less than 100 infections per 100,000 population over a two-week period.

Here's the two-week incidence rates for the parishes in Region 7:

Iberia - 810.53

Acadia - 681.78

Lafayette - 673.03

St. Martin - 622.89

Vermilion - 478.02

St. Landry - 467.59

Evangeline - 376.76

Here’s the listing, highest to lowest, of the two-week incidence rates for all of the state’s parishes:
