New Orleans Mayor Shutting Down Businesses Not Complying With COVID ‘Rules’


Mayor Latoya Cantrell says she’ll temporarily close businesses that are not following guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. She called out specific businesses, Monday, after the first weekend of compliance task force inspections. It is a new group created specifically to crack down on places that are not following the rules.

“This one seems pretty safe,” said Rouses shopper Josh Gates.

Gates and Chrystal Nause live on the Westbank but usually travel to Midcity or Uptown to buy their groceries.

“We don’t try to go there very often,” Nause said. “Because most people don’t wear masks.”
