Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Monday that Louisiana will move into Phase 2 reopening on Friday (June 5).

As in Phase 1, the White House plan for Opening Up American Again is the basis for the state’s Phase 2 plan.

Visit OpenSafely.la.gov to receive guidance and updates from the State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Louisiana Department of Health.

Businesses that require approval of reopening plans will be notified by the State Fire Marshal’s Office or the Louisiana Department of Health.

Businesses should still have workers work remotely where possible, high-risk people should stay home, everyone should wear a mask.

Edwards encouraged those vulnerable individuals to stay home as much as possible.
