critical businesses, contractors and first responders. Tier 2 is made up

Both tiers are going to begin returning simultaneously Tuesday at noon.

Tier 1 and Tier 2 agencies and businesses must have "re-entry placards,"
which are credentials allowing them to enter and move about in the parish.

re-entry for residents.
