BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry has tested positive for coronavirus according to a report from the Advocate.

Landry was scheduled to greet Vice President Pence on the tarmac Tuesday morning as Pence is arriving in Louisiana to discuss the surging number of virus cases in the state. Landry is no longer expected to meet the Vice President due to testing positive for the virus.

In a letter to BESE members, Landry urged the panel to avoid mandating face masks when schools reopen saying it would "create a situation that may cross the line of liberty". BESE is scheduled to hold a special meeting Tuesday to approve minimum safety standards.
