Lawmakers seek bar curfew repeal as virus cases hit new high



COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — State senators in Ohio have moved to lift a 10 p.m. curfew on alcohol sales at bars and restaurants on the same day that the state set a single-day record of reported COVID-19 cases. The senators aim to boost an industry hurt by the coronavirus pandemic even as daily reported cases topped the state's previous high set on April 16. A bill to repeal the curfew imposed on July 31 was introduced in the Republican-controlled Ohio Senate with bipartisan support Thursday, when 2,178 cases of the virus were reported. The curfew prohibits purchases after 10 p.m. and consumption after 11 p.m. Lobbyists for the beer and wine industry had lobbied to extend it at least until midnight.
