According to the report, Staxx Sports Bar and Grill broke the city mandated order by failing to have adequate contact tracing records and social distancing protocol in place.

Mayor Caldwell’s tiered order allows restaurants to operate at 50% capacity, but the establishment must request the name, address and contact information of each customer and keep intermingling groups to five or less.

The commission says Staxx will have the 24-hour period to execute corrective action and train its employees to avoid further violations which could lead to an indefinite forced closure.
