Louisiana entered Phase 3 of coronavirus restrictions last week, and with that change comes the reopening of more businesses, including bars.
Gov. John Bel Edwards' order allows bars to reopen if they are located in parishes with less than a 5% positivity rate for two consecutive weeks. Only a handful of parishes meet that criteria so far.
In a live Q&A on The Advocate Facebook page Wednesday, reporter Jeff Adelson and data analyst Jeff Asher explain the parameters around bar reopening, plus what the data shows about coronavirus spread at colleges and universities.
They also took questions from the audience about outdoor sporting events, and the impact of Hurricane Laura on coronavirus spread in the state.
