Hearings to be held this week on bars caught violating coronavirus restrictions

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio Liquor Control Commission will hold hearings this week on bars caught violating Governor Mike DeWine’s coronavirus safety restrictions.

Several local businesses are scheduled to have hearings.

  • Adventure Bay, Park Hotel, and Splash Swim-Up Bar and Pool in Put-in-Bay
  • The Wine Bar in Vermilion

Luchita’s Mexican Restaurant in Cleveland was also cited for creating a condition that presents a risk of illness. That violation took place on or about April 10, before the governor’s restrictions allowing dine-in service went into place.

Per Governor Mike DeWine’s Responsible RestartOhio plan, restaurants and bars must enforce a minimum of six feet between different groups of customers. They must also require all workers to wear face coverings and complete a daily symptom assessment.

The Ohio Investigative Unit, a unit of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, has been enforcing the rules since Governor DeWine implemented them in May.

The hearings were scheduled to be held online from August 3-7. Park Hotel, Adventure Bay, and Luchita’s hearings were all scheduled to a later date.
