The Louisiana Department of Health has launched a new interactive dashboard for tracking COVID-19 testing results in Louisiana. This new dashboard includes a heat map of the state along with a breakdown of positive cases by parish.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted that lab tests have proven to be reliable and CDC confirmation of positive lab results is no longer needed. To reflect this change, the Department has removed CDC confirmed cases from the dashboard and now results are considered positive instead of presumptive positive. Additionally, the dashboard also includes positive results from commercial labs.
