A pub in Washington, D.C. was given two separate $1,000 fines for violating coronavirus restrictions.
WTOP reported that Harry’s Restaurant was served the fines “after city officials noted patrons violating coronavirus-related regulations.”
“D.C’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration said one of its investigators issued the first $1,000 citation for ‘several observed Phase Two violations including patrons without facial coverings, patrons standing while consuming alcohol, and insufficient table spacing’ on Friday, Nov. 13,” the outlet reported. “The establishment was issued a second $1,000 citation the following day for ‘patrons without facial coverings and more than six (6) patrons being seated at a table.’”
It is unclear where the patrons were when they weren’t wearing masks, as they aren’t typically required while sitting and eating.
D.C. officials told the outlet that the restaurant had been previously warned through verbal and written warnings for similar violations last month. The restaurant told WTOP that it had “no statement” regarding the violations.
