The Restaurant & Bar Owned By Jimmy Buffett’s Sister Hit Hard By Delta Variant
A staff outbreak of COVID-19 has caused the restaurant and bar owned by Jimmy Buffett’s sister to temporary close.
Lulu’s Gulf Shores in Gulf Shores, AL, does not have enough healthy people to work as the Delta variant of the disease
Here is the statement by owner Lucy Buffett, posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page:
To our beloved patrons – Well, here we go again. COVID infections are racing among our staff to the point that we did do not have enough team members to operate today; that is the simple truth. Folks, this is serious business and for the health and safety of my LuLu’s family and our beloved customers, we are closing our Gulf Shores restaurant today, August 2, 2021. We are taking a pause to evaluate the best way to navigate this next phase of COVID.
“We are shooting to reopen on Monday, August 9, 2021. Check back here for updates. This is the saddest day for me in the history of LuLu’s. My primary concern is for you and your well-being during these crazy times. We appreciate your patience and your support.
Thank you and stay safe out there.
– Lucy Buffett
