BATON ROUGE, La. (KSLA) - The Louisiana National Guard is not tasked with breaking up large gatherings in the state, including at churches.

This comes after the pastor of a Baton Rouge, Louisiana church welcomed hundreds of people into his church Tuesday evening.

Governor John Bel Edwards banned groups larger than 50 from gathering at any one time, including in churches.

President Donald Trump has recommended no groups larger than 10.
