NEW ORLEANS-  Mayor Latoya Cantrell announced New Orleans will move into a modified Phase 3 starting Friday.

Cantrell said the city will join the rest of the state in easing COVID-19 restrictions, but with some additional precautions in place. The announcement comes a little more than a week after Cantrell announced that New Orleans was staying in Phase 2

The new restrictions for the city include 75% capacity in places of worship, 50% capacity for most businesses and capping indoor events at 75 people, among others.

According to the New Orleans Health Department, the decision to move into Phase 3 was a result of the city meeting public health milestones. The city will continue to monitor coronavirus cases before making any other changes.
