Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Enforcement Officers have cited a Mercer County business for allegedly violating Governor Tom Wolf’s restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of COVID 19.

Agents who visited the Reynolds Post No. 7599 Veterans of Foreign Wars, in Pymatuning Township on two separate occasions in February say some customers weren’t wearing masks or failed to stay six feet apart.  In addition, the post allowed customers to have drinks while not seated at a table.

Officers say on a third visit in early May, customers were not maintaining the required six-foot distancing.

The charges will be brought before an Administrative Law Judge who has the authority to impose penalties ranging from $50-$1,000 for minor offenses and up to $5,000 for more serious offenses.

In addition, the judge can also impose a license suspension or revocation of the license based on the severity of the charge brought.

The citations come less than a month before Pennsylvania plans to lift many of the mitigation orders beginning Memorial Day.
