BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Department of Health reported 689 new cases and 6 new deaths on Friday, April 30, 2021, bringing the total number of cases to 458,581 and the total number of deaths to 10,382.

As stated on the LDH website, the new case increase may not match the difference between today’s total cases and the previous update because of the daily removal of newly identified duplicates and out-of-state cases.
