Restrictions loosen in NOLA, as control over coronavirus remains hopeful.
There’s no more last call at 1AM starting Friday thanks to the confirmation of looser COVID rules and restrictions. The decision was confirmed by Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s administration on Wednesday.
But it’s not only the ban on selling alcohol after 1 a.m. that will be changing, others include a ban on second lines, capacity restrictions on dining and events, and in gyms!
Starting Friday, the following changes will go into effect:
🏈Larger events will be allowed
🎺Second lines & parades will be allowed
🍸Time limit on alcohol sales will be removed
🥊Gyms will be allowed at 100% capacity

Restaurants can now return to their usual table layout pre-pandemic, which will put an end to socially distanced dining.
These change of rules come from the steady progression the city is taking with the vaccination, and the Mayor’s gradual loosening of coronavirus restrictions.
This is certainly a milestone that’s been eagerly anticipated for a while, with many NOLA bars open all day, every day, including Cafe Lafitte in Exile, Ms. Mae’s, and Alibi.
