According to The Advocate, Governor Edwards is expected to announce the follow today:

Gov. John Bel Edwards has called a rare Saturday press conference where he is expected to announce new restrictions that will likely include a statewide mask mandate and and heightened restrictions on bars, according to a source with knowledge of the announcement. 

Edwards is set to announce the moves 2:30 p.m. Saturday after the state posted two straight days of more than 2,000 new coronavirus cases and as trends have worsened over the past two weeks. 

The move will extend statewide a mask mandate, which already has been put in place by Jefferson, East Baton Rouge and Orleans parishes, among others. Those rules require the public to wear masks or face coverings inside businesses.
