The Gretna Police Department confirms officers shut down two bars early Sunday morning.

As WWLTV reports, Captain Russell Lloyd says El Patron and Nany’s Antojitos were shut down and given citations because they say the bar was open and serving alcohol to customers. A state emergency order bans bars from being open and serving drinks at this time.

The police department says the businesses will remain closed until Gretna City Council reconsiders their business license.
