Columbus Bar Among Eight In Ohio Cited For Violating COVID-19 Restrictions


State health officials Sunday reported 800 new cases of COIVD-19 and one new death. 

The state now has 150,809 cases and 4,741 deaths.  

A Columbus bar is one of eight in Ohio cited over the weekend for violating COVID-19 health orders.  The Ohio Investigative Unit says Average Joe's Pub and Grill on East Dublin Granville Road violated the state's 10pm alcohol curfew. Average Joe's sister location in Hilliard temporarily closed last week after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.  Seven other bars, including three in Toledo and one in Port Clinton, were cited for violating the curfew and social distancing orders. Their cases now go before the Ohio Liquor Control Commission.
