American rapper, 2 Chainz’ restaurant in Atlanta has been forced to shut down for violating coronavirus guidelines.
According to reports, the state police shut down the rapper’s Escobar Restaurant & Tapas establishment. A complaint had been made to the police that the Georgia native’s restaurant was:
not utilizing any social distancing practices and were over capacity of the 10 patrons per 300 square feet.
After the manager on shift received a warning, the manager told the customers to leave and closed the restaurant.
Hours later, a second complaint was made. The new manager, who was different from the person that had previously received the first warning, was reportedly aware of the first complaint. After the officer entered the establishment, the officer noticed that the same guidelines had been violated.
The manager requested that the security close the restaurant and tell customers to leave.
On the 5th of May, 2 Chainz reopened his restaurant. This was about two weeks after Brian Kemp, the state governor, revealed his plans to reopen the state on the 24th of April during the COVID-19 pandemic.
His Escobar Restaurant & Tapas eatery was opened for takeout orders as a result of the pandemic. This is prior to returning to its normal operations.
