Tracey's Original Irish Channel Bar at Magazine and Third Streets has been told to shut down for violating the city of New Orleans' pandemic guidelines.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell says the business will not be allowed to reopen until it submits a plan to the city that includes how it will deal with overcrowding.

Mayor's office spokesman Beau Tidwell says they were alerted to the situation by social media posts that appeared to show violations.
