Gov. John Bel Edwards will move Louisiana into Phase 2 of reopening June 5, allowing businesses to expand their limited operations or open for the first time since he issued the first coronavirus stay-at-home order in March.

Casinos will now be allowed to open up 75% of their “gaming positions” like slot machines.

As of May 27, six of Shreveport-Bossier’s seven casinos have reopened for business. Please note that some amenities, such as restaurants, spas and retail shops, may remain closed at this time in keeping with federal and state guidance. Contact individual casino properties directly for more information.
