Oklahoma bars, restaurants get temporary curfew reprieve

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma bars and restaurants have effectively won a temporary reprieve from a curfew that has been forcing them to close early since November. A state judge sided with a group of bar owners on Friday, granting them a 12-day stay on Gov. Kevin Stitt’s order that bars and restaurants not serve food or alcohol after 11 p.m.

The curfew is aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus. The Oklahoman reports that the judge’s ruling only applied to the six plaintiffs in the case. However, Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission Director Keith Burt says that the agency won’t not enforce the curfew anywhere for now.
