The city of New Orleans today is set to announce new mitigation efforts as the Delta variant of COVID-19 causes a fourth surge of the pandemic.
“All options are on the table,” said New Orleans Mayor’s office spokesman Beau Tidwell.
Tidwell says the rise in case numbers is startling, and they will do everything they can to get that under control.
“Vaccinations are absolutely going to be the key in this,” he said. “Masks are certainly something they’re looking at. It’s under consideration. It’s a strong possibility.”
