AKRON, Ohio — An Akron bar was cited by Ohio Investigative Unit agents for violating Gov. Mike DeWine's health orders.

Ray's Pub was cited for after-hours consumption after agents saw customers being served drinks at 10:20 p.m., although they were purchased before 10 p.m.

Two Columbus bars were also cited on Saturday.

“We continue to work with our law enforcement partners and local health departments following up on complaints to ensure liquor-permitted establishments maintain compliance, so everyone can enjoy a healthy experience,” said OIU Enforcement Commander Eric Wolf. “When egregious violations are observed, enforcement action is taken. We all need to continue to work together by following the precautions put in place to make these establishments safe and compliant with the directives.”
