Phase one reopening of Louisiana will go into effect Friday


BATON ROUGE, La. Gov. John Bel Edwards is loosening restrictions this weekend on churches, restaurants, salons and gyms. The Democratic governor announced Monday that he's moving the state away from a "stay-at-home" position he enacted in late March.

The new regulations take effect Friday and are largely in line with the first phase of reopening as envisioned under the White House guidelines provided to states.

Businesses allowed to open will be limited to one-quarter of their previous capacity, and employees working around customers will have to wear masks. Restaurants will be able to reopen inside seating and table service, but at the 25% capacity level. Tattoo parlors, spas, amusement parks and children's museums will remain closed.

The proclamation will be issued Thursday and in place for 21 days. The next update on guidelines is expected June 1.
