New Orleans Likely to Lag State in Reopenings Amid Virus

New Orleans will likely ease restrictions on gatherings and businesses more slowly than the rest of Louisiana as the fight against the new Coronavirus continues. A Crescent City health official said today (Friday) large memorial day gatherings along the gulf coast in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi might have involved New Orleans residents. City officials want more time to collect and analyze data to determine the effect of New Orleans residents’ visits to such Memorial Day events before further loosening restrictions. Governor John Bel Edwards is expected to announce Monday whether Louisiana will further ease restrictions when current emergency orders expire June 5th.
