BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A bar on Chippewa Street in Buffalo has been issued a closure order by the Erie County Department of Health for violations related to COVID-19.

The Cowboy was ordered to close on Saturday based on findings from two recent inspections and the Department of Health observed violations of state executive orders related to the coronavirus, according to a spokesperson for the ECDOH.

Last week, The Cowboy was one of several businesses that received a violation notice for improper face mask use.

Health officials say the bar is now "required to provide a written corrective action plan/business safety plan to our department, which will have to be reviewed and approved before the facility is allowed to resume operations."

Seven Eyewitness News has reached out to The Cowboy for a statement and has not heard back at this time.
