CALGARY – A restaurant and hookah bar in southwest Calgary have won an order from Alberta Health Services after they were discovered to be providing dine-in services to their customers.
Soby’s Eatery at 1131 17 Ave. SW was ordered by a health inspector on May 20 to stop serving food and shisha to customers.
“The operator offered a dine-in-food service and a shisha service in the food company’s dining room,” the order says.
The chief physician of the Seventh Health Care Ordinance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing such services designed to encourage the spread of the disease.
As a result, the owner of Soby’s Eatery was told to stop serving customers in the restaurant immediately.
Once the public health contracts have been canceled, they are allowed to serve customers again.
Calgary restaurants may reopen for dine-in service on May 25, according to Alberta Health, but facilities offering these services will be limited to 50 percent capacity.
