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.
