Standard Hall was in the news not too long ago after being accused of not enforcing social distancing and even shut down for a few days to better prepare their establishment.  But after opening it has been shared in many social media posts as an overly crowded location.  Many accused the bar/restaurant of putting profits over the safety of people.  After receiving three warnings from the Columbus Public Health department, the owner claimed that he wasn’t given proper time by the state to prepare to open and he was being unfairly targeted.
