The Big Easy is moving into the second phase of Louisiana's reopening plan on Saturday.
During a town hall meeting Tuesday, Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced that in the second phase of reopening for New Orleans, restaurants and other businesses will be able to bump up capacity to 50% while maintaining social distancing measures.
Other places that will be open and welcoming up to 250 people will include movie theaters and houses of worship.
Bars, casinos and video poker establishments will also be able to open at 25% capacity.
The rest of Louisiana moved into Phase Two last week, but New Orleans officials chose to stay in Phase One to limit a spike in coronavirus cases in the city.
