KANSAS CITY, Mo. — UPDATE, 4 p.m. | A Jackson County judge has issued an order to temporarily close Rae’s Cafe over COVID-19 health policy violations.

READ THE TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

EARLIER | Jackson County officials have filed a legal petition in circuit court seeking a judge’s order to formally shut down Rae’s Cafe in Blue Springs over failure to comply with county health orders.

The filing seeks a temporary restraining order that would prevent the cafe and its owner, Amanda Wohletz, from continuing to operate the restaurant in violation of the health order and without a valid food permit.

READ THE PETITION

On Thursday, Jackson County Health Department issues ordered the cafe to close “effective immediately” after the cafe continued to disregard orders from the department.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
