Numerous businesses around Ruston that were closed during the coronavirus stay-at-home order opened their doors Friday as Louisiana began its transition to Phase One of economic reopening. Establishments like barber shops and gyms must maintain social distancing and limit occupancy to 25% of maximum capacity.
