COVID-19 Re-Opening

Recommendations & Guidelines

ALL VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS* should continue to shelter at home.  We strongly recommend anyone 65 and older shelter at home. It is also highly recommended that anyone with underlying medical conditions continue to shelter at home. Members of households with vulnerable residents should be aware that by returning to work or other environments where distancing is not practical, they could carry the virus back home.  Precautions should be taken to isolate from vulnerable residents.

ALL INDIVIDUALS, WHEN IN PUBLIC (e.g., parks, outdoor recreation areas, shopping areas), should maximize physical distance from others (minimum 6 feet).  Social settings of more than 10 people, where appropriate distancing may not be practical, should be avoided unless precautionary measures are observed.

AVOID SOCIALIZING in groups of more than 10 people in circumstances that do not readily allow for appropriate physical distancing (e.g., receptions, trade shows).

MINIMIZE NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL and adhere to CDC guidelines regarding isolation following travel.

*All retail stores, banks, restaurants, museums, libraries, churches and all public buildings shall post a warning sign stating:


It is highly recommended that individuals over the

age of 65 and anyone with underlying medical

conditions should continue to shelter at home.


  • All retail stores and restaurants maintain no more than 25% occupancy and wear proper PPE at all times.

  • All museums and libraries can re-open at 25% occupancy.

  • Sole proprietors can safely return to work following all social distancing guidelines recommended by the CDC

  • Churches and places of worship may open while continuing to follow the CDC social distancing guidelines. It is highly recommended that individuals over the age of 65 and anyone with underlying medical conditions should continue to shelter at home.

  • Outdoor sports will be allowed to resume so long as no more than four (4) participants are playing together at one time.

  • Nursing Homes and Day Care Centers shall continue to follow LDH and CDC Guidelines.

  • River Boat Cruises remain closed until further notice.


“Please use common sense and continue to be neighborly. We are all in this together.”
