Self-quarantining in Pennsylvania can finally include a post-work cocktail again.
Liquor stores will be open for curbside pickup beginning Monday, a month after Gov. Tom Wolf shut them and other businesses down during the coronavirus shutdown.
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced Saturday that residents will be able to make one call a day, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and order up to six bottles each call at more than 150 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores around the state.
“We understand the disruption our store closures have on Pennsylvania consumers and licensees across the state, and more information will be made available as we develop and finalize plans to support our employees, licensees, suppliers and customers to the best of our abilities in these uncertain times,” the board said in a statement.
“For now, mitigation of the public health crisis must take priority over the sale of wine and spirits, as the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities is paramount.”
Breweries, wineries and distilleries are still allowed to sell, and grocery stores still carry beer and wine.
As of Sunday afternoon, 32,284 people in Pennsylvania have tested positive for coronavirus. Of those, 1,112 people have died.
