BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. John Bel Edwards intends to keep Louisiana’s face covering requirement firmly in place even as several states have shed their mask mandates. But the Democratic governor announced Tuesday that he is ending many other coronavirus restrictions for businesses. Customer limits on bars, restaurants, salons, gyms, malls, casinos and other nonessential businesses will be removed, though they’ll be required to use social distancing. Direct table service still will be required at bars, but an 11 p.m. alcohol curfew will end. The changes represent the fewest restrictions for businesses since the pandemic began. The new rules start Wednesday. Local officials could choose to enact tougher limits
