The Gold Bar, in downtown Columbia, says it’s still trying to finalize plans on how to move forward. As it’s concerned about the safety of its patrons and staff members. The bar will continue to enforce masks while customers are in the building. Customers will be allowed to remove their masks while eating or drinking. The Gold Bar manager, Kymberlee Hunter, said customers are still required to keep masks on while dancing on the dance floor. Many local bars and clubs are preparing plans on how they’ll move forward with continuing COVID-19 safety for employees and guests.
Hunter says the bar is looking forward to getting back to some type of normalcy as many of their customers have not been able to fully experience, ‘The Gold Bar experience’, due to the many health order restrictions that were in place. The health order expiration will no longer require businesses to enforce masks and social distancing within their buildings. Businesses will have the right to choose whether to continue enforcing customers to wear masks. The health department does recommend that businesses and residents continue COVID-19 mitigation efforts and continue following CDC guidelines.
