The protesters, some with a beer in hand, held up signs and cheered as cars drove by. The new restriction bans on-site consumption of alcohol at bars and restaurants.

They say they have been losing a lot of money with the shutdowns, and they want the county to know they need to reopen their businesses.

KDKA’s Royce Jones was on scene and said police escorted the protesters as they moved through five bars.
