Lyle Westerfield, owner of Lyle’s Bikes, Brews & BBQ on Railroad Avenue next to the Little Miami Scenic Trail in downtown Loveland, works the entrance to his establishment, wearing a mask. Server Lindsey Watters stands nearby, awaiting more customers.
Westerfield said he had to move tables so far apart in reduced his seating to about half his normal capacity. Regardless, he was happy to be back in business with customers eating on his property.
After the state-imposed coronavirus shutdown, restaurants and bars in downtown Loveland were allowed re-open for outdoor seating only.
