State reopens Calcasieu Lake oyster bed

From KPLC Staff:

Lake Charles, LA(KPLC)-State officials have reopened an oyster bed closed last week over fears of a potentially dangerous bacteria. Area 29 in lower Calcasieu Lake was closed on January 14, amid fears oysters caught there were responsible for a norovirus outbreak in North Carolina. Tuesday, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals determined the oysters in the area were safe to eat.
