BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's casinos will not immediately reopen when the governor's current stay-at-home order expires this Friday.

The chairman of Louisiana's Gaming Control Board says they will remain closed until Monday, May 18. That is due largely to revised floor plans for gambling spaces needing to be approved.

When those locations reopen, they will be required to meet several social distancing and sanitization conditions. Those new conditions include limiting buildings to 25-percent capacity, checking visitors for fever and other symptoms before allowing them to enter, and offering face coverings to those entering the gaming area.
