LDWF has closed Elmer’s Island due to coronavirus concerns. This closure follows the recommendations of the Grand Isle Mayor and Town Council, as they close all beaches and public areas.
The Town of Grand Isle’s website says they are following parish, state and federal guidelines. There will be no fishing on fishing piers, no short term rentals and no playground/parks open due to the state’s stay at home order. Only essential businesses are allowed to be opened. There is also no golf cart/side by sides allowed on the streets, LA Hwy 1 or the beach. The beach will also be closed.
