FORT WORTH, Texas - Varsity Tavern in Fort Worth has had its liquor license suspended for 30 days for not complying with COVID-19 protocols.
Photos taken by TABC agents earlier this month showed people inside the tavern not following social distancing rules and not wearing face masks.
Under the executive order issued by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, businesses can face penalties for not following COVID-19 protocols, such as social distancing and patrons wearing face masks.
Due to Varsity Tavern not adhering to those protocols, the TABC found that the continued operation of the business would "constitute a continuing threat to the public welfare."
As such, TABC officials decided to suspend Varsity Tavern’s liquor license for 30 days.
