With each day that ticks by, we’re all becoming more eager to get back out on the roads. The economy in Louisiana is going to start reopening on the 16th, but New Orleans will be seeing more restrictions for now. The Lens reports.
According to Mayor LaToya Cantrell, the city is using the state guidelines as a basis, but the city may take additional steps. On this Friday, the stay at home order will be lifted and certain businesses will be able to reopen at 25% capacity. Restaurants are also part of this order, though high-risk businesses like bars will stay close.

However, in New Orleans there might not be much change. While some restrictions will lift, event venues and bars will remain shuttered and social distancing will still be in place. There are also possible mandatory quarantines if you’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. Until the state releases its final recommendations, many of the state’s stricter measures are up in the air.
Tomorrow, the mayor is releasing comprehensive guidelines for determining which businesses are “low-risk” and “medium-risk with modifications”. People will still need to wear face coverings when they are out and about.
There is good news though. The efforts to quarantine ourselves have flattened the curve and the number of tests have increased, along with hospital capacity.
