CONCORD, NH (AP) – A restaurant in New Hampshire has been fined $ 1,500 following a complaint of lack of social distance and mask wearing during the coronavirus pandemic, the state attorney’s office said Tuesday.

The Attorney General said in his letter to Grumpy’s that it had also previously been notified in writing that 2 meters were required between the tables. the number of people in the bar must be limited to maintain the distance of 6 feet; and standing and mingling in bar areas is forbidden.
Richard LeClaire, Grumpy’s owner, said businesses in nearby Massachusetts were closed earlier under new rules, and “so we ended up with a serious overflow that we were not ready for.” He said since then, “we have taken action so that it does not happen again.”
Separately, three recent cases of the virus were linked to Grumpy’s with possible exposure to the community on Nov. 10 and Nov. 14, state health officials said last week. The restaurant had said on its Facebook page that the entire company has since had a “deep cleaning”.
Last week, the Attorney General’s Office fined a bakery, bagel shop and pizza $ 500 each after repeated complaints about staff not wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic.
