CHICO, Calif. - A social media post about a Chico bar staying open during this time has many people contacting Action News Now – angry.

The owner of the Crazy Horse Saloon, Brian Buckley, says he’s in the Caribbean right now and says he didn’t know what was going on.

The picture floating around on the Crazy Horse’ Instagram page saying 'they’re open and to come on down.' Several viewers sent messages us saying “this is not ok.”

Buckley says over the phone he’s out of the country and was going off the CDC's initial 250 person limit and didn’t know about the updated CDC guidelines limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people."

"You know I think they should maybe follow in the footsteps of Kevin Riley close down for a bit at least cause it got pretty serious in new york and everything lets not underestimate the seriousness of this and just stay at home and booze with your buddy's there," Chico State student Branden Messick said.

Buckley told me he encouraged his staff not to work but they asked to stay open so they could pay their bills. Buckley also says he wanted to stay open to give people a little relief from the coronavirus fears.

The bar is now temporarily closed.

Monday was almost as hot as Sunday for most of northern California as a ridge of high pressure controlled our weather. A cooling trend is coming, but it will only cool to seasonable levels in the short term.
