At Least Four More Ohio Bars Cited For Violating COVID-19 Restrictions


State health officials Sunday reported over 15-hundred new cases  of COVID-19 but no new deaths. 

The state now has 181,787 cases and 5,067 deaths. 

At least four Ohio bars were cited over the weekend for violating state coronavirus health orders.  The Ohio Investigative Unit  says The Pub on West Johnstown Road Saturday violated the state's 10pm alcohol curfew. Agents found hundreds of people dancing and not adhering to social distancing protocols at the Uptown Lounge in Akron.  Meanwhile in Willard, agents found no social distancing, no mask-wearing and curfew violations at the Bridge Bar and Grill.  And the Spotlight Lounge in Toledo also had a lack of social distancing.
