Local Bar Among Four Cited For Violating COVID-19 Restrictions

State health officials Sunday reported 2,309 new cases of COVID-19 and no new deaths. 

Ohio now has 198,115 cases and 5,206 deaths. 

Four Ohio bars were cited over the weekend for violating state COVID-19 health orders. The Ohio Investigative Unit says agents found overcrowded conditions and other violations at Midway Bar on North High Street during the OSU football game Saturday.  Agents say staff failed to enforce guidelines and few people were wearing face masks. Five people were charged with underage consumption. Ray's Pub in Akron allegedly violated  the 10pm alcohol curfew, as did Wild Side Brewing in Grand Rapids and DB Downtown Billiards in Wauseon.
