08:56 ET - The hard-hit restaurant and bar sector lost a further 19,000 jobs in January, Labor Department data shows. Increased coronavirus restrictions have badly hurt full-service restaurants and some chains that depend on indoor dining. Overall, employment in restaurants, hotels and the larger leisure and hospitality sector is down by 3.9 million, or 22.9 percent, since last February. (heather.haddon@wsj.com; @heatherhaddon)
