Governor Ned Lamont says authorities will continue to crack down on businesses that violate coronavirus protocols, after a Fairfield bar and restaurant was shut down over the weekend.
Police say the Brickyard Pub had a crowd that exceeded capacity and many patrons weren’t wearing masks. Lamont noted Monday the pub is in a town which is seeing spike in COVID-19 cases.
"These are bars masquerading as restaurants," he told reporters. "They are flagrantly disregarding the protocols and they lead up to an outbreak."
