Bar owners: Let us operate at 50% capacity with guidelines in place


    Barkeepers and operators are urging authorities to allow them to run their businesses at 50% capacity and with full implementation of health guidelines.

    In a release, the Barkeepers and Operators Association says bar owners, employees and their families have endured tremendous challenges and struggles over the past 8 months.

    With persons being allowed to gather in groups of ten, it is asking for equal opportunity for bars and believes the risk will be at a minimum at bars due to their controlled environments.

    It insists bars have reinvented themselves, trained and implemented all the proper health guidelines and protocols.
