CLEVELAND — Two businesses in Cleveland were cited Sunday for violating COVID-19 health orders, the Ohio Investigative Unit said in a release Monday.

Agents cited Harry Buffalo in Cleveland for improper conduct—disorderly activity. Agents arrived at 4:40 p.m. and found approximately 250 patrons inside, with most of the seats at the bar occupied and additional patrons standing behind others.

Cebar’s Euclid Tavern was also cited for improper conduct-disorderly activity.

At around 4:50 p.m., agents found approximately 150 people inside with most seats at the bar occupied. Other patrons were found standing directly behind others.

Agents cited Cebar’s Euclid Tavern twice before, once on April 3 and the other on Jan. 9.

Agents found little social distancing or physical barriers in place at both establishments.
