The decision comes after officials claim La Salle Parish has seen a steady amount of cases and no major outbreaks.

Several elected officials, the district attorney, pastors, and other officials met and ultimately decided they will not stop businesses, churches, restaurants, or other operations that choose to open on May 1.
