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.
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.
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.
