Indoor dining ban will stand: Judge denies lawsuit filed against St. Louis County


ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The ban on indoor dining at restaurants and bars in St. Louis County has been upheld in court.

A judge this afternoon denied the request by the Missouri Restaurant Association and more than three dozen restaurants, for a temporary restraining order against County Executive Sam Page's ban on indoor dining.

Page issued the ban last week, as part of his effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
