CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit cited a Cleveland bar and a Euclid bar for violating COVID-19 health orders on Sunday, Jan. 17, during the Cleveland Browns playoff game.

The agents visited Harry Buffalo in Cleveland and Cebar’s Euclid Tavern.

At Harry Buffalo, agents said they arrived around 4:40 p.m. and saw about 250 customers congregated throughout the restaurant.

Agents said many seats at the bar were occupied and patrons stood behind others to order.

There was also little to no social distancing measures or physical barriers in place, said agents.

At Cebar’s Euclid Tavern, agents said they arrived around 4:50 p.m. and saw about 150 customers inside.

Agents said most of the seats at the bar were occupied with patrons standing directly behind others and there was very little social distancing measures or physical barriers in place.

Cebar’s Euclid Tavern was also cited on April 3, 2020 and Jan. 9, 2021 for improper conduct.

These cases will go before the Ohio Liquor Control Commission for potential penalties.

The commissioners could decide to pull the bars liquor permits.
