LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A Little Rock bar has been shut down after Arkansas health officials traced it to a cluster of coronavirus cases and found the business wasn’t complying with virus safety measures. The Department of Health on Saturday ordered Brewski’s Pub and Grub to cease operations until it appears before a state panel. According to the order, the bar was inspected by state Alcohol Beverage Control officials after the cases were traced to it. The order says the bar was exceeding capacity limits, and wasn’t ensuring patrons were social distancing or wearing masks.
