The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have released new COVID-19 guidelines. This time, the CDC is recommending gatherings of no more than 10 people.

Earlier today, the State of Louisiana joined states like California, Illinois, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Washington in closing restaurants and bars. Similar to those states, Louisiana's ban will still allow to-go, drive-through, and delivery orders.

The state has also moved to close casinos as well.

The move comes after police in New Orleans were forced to break up gatherings over the weekend. reported that police had to break up a St. Patrick's Day celebration on Saturday, while WWL reports that police broke up gatherings in the French Quarter.

These bans will be in place until April 13.

This latest move comes after the state has already suspended schools, and public gatherings of 250 people or more, until April 13th.

The state of Louisiana has been increasing testing over the last week, and as more tests are being conducted, the number of those diagnosed have steadily increased.
