LA BIZ REOPENING GUIDELINES – Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Monday the state is launching a website to help businesses navigate the reopening process as coronavirus cases and deaths trend downward.
"It will allow businesses to get the exact social distancing and sanitation guidelines that they need for each phase of our reopening," Edwards explained. " And it will get that information before we get to that face so they can do what is necessary to prepare."
The website, opensafely.la.gov, allows businesses to register and get updates about the state's phased approach to reopening. The website also provides phase-by-phase guidance for different types of businesses and allows consumers to file complaints if businesses are not following requirements.
The latest update from the Louisiana Department of Health website reveals there have been 29,673 Covid-19 cases and 1,991 deaths reported. More than 20,000 cases are presumed recovered.
