Lucy’s Retired Surfers bar off Tchoupitoulas in the CBD HAS temporarily CLOSED AFTER an EMPLOYEE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19. The company informed the public via social media today. The closure comes just five days after Louisiana entered into phase 2, and bars were able to re-open at 25% capacity again.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Lucy’s New Orleans after a member of our staff received a positive COVID-19 test result this afternoon.” – Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar
