Multiple parishes reported larger jumps in case counts in Friday’s report. Franklin added five cases, Union eight and Richland eight. 

Cases in Jackson Parish are also surging with 77 cases reported by the sheriff’s office Thursday, an increase of nine compared to Wednesday data. The JPSO reports locally collected data due to a discrepancy with LDH numbers.

According to Tensas Homeland Security, there are six cases in the parish compared to the one reported by LDH.

Per local data, there are 1,311 cases across northeast Louisiana and 44 deaths.
