MANSFIELD, Ohio (WOIO) - A bar in Mansfield was cited for its fifth time on Feb. 5 for violating the state’s COVID-19 health orders by Ohio Investigative Unit. The citation is for improper conduct and disorderly conduct.

Agents arrived at Planet Rock at 11:35 p.m. and agents observed a line of people attempting to enter the establishment. Agents witnessed approximately 60 patrons inside the premises, with little to no social distancing measures in place. Patrons were openly consuming alcoholic beverages and moving freely throughout.

Seats at the bar were occupied while others stood at the bar, OIU said.
