The state fire marshal's office is making surprise visits at businesses to ensure managers are following state guidelines meant to keep customers healthy.

Yesterday, State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said that he will begin issuing courtesy visits at restaurants, bars, and other establishments to make sure workers are wearing masks, sanitizing common areas, social distancing and adhering to building capacity limitations.

Browning says his main goal is to educate businesses if he sees they're doing something wrong.

Since Phase One of reopening began, the fire marshal's office has received a total of 216 official complaints statewide, with records showing that 46 of those complaints were about businesses in the Baton Rouge area.
