Another Louisiana oyster-harvesting area closed
BATON ROUGE, La. — For the third time in a week, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has closed an oyster harvesting area because of an outbreak of illness.
This time, it’s “Area 13,” west of the Mississippi River in southern Jefferson and Lafourche parishes.
Last Wednesday, the department closed an area in Plaquemines Parish because of a norovirus outbreak in Mississippi. On Thursday, part of St. Bernard Parish waters were closed to mollusc harvest because of another outbreak.
Both of those areas are east of the Mississippi River and more than 60 miles from the latest area closed.
