NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans will no longer require face coverings indoors starting this Thursday, the city announced just a day after the Mardi Gras season came to a close.

Mayor Latoya Cantrell confirmed the end of the mandate during a news conference Wednesday afternoon. However, masks will still be required on public transportation and inside healthcare facilities.

Certain businesses will also continue to require proof of a vaccine, the mayor added.

City health officials said the decision of whether to require masks at schools will be left up to the schools themselves.
