Restaurants With Liquor License can Include Alcohol in Carryout Orders


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Restaurants across Ohio that are still open for carryout or delivery services can now include alcohol in their orders.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine says the Ohio Division of Liquor Control approved the emergency measure Tuesday that allows establishments to include up to two alcoholic drinks per order.

The drinks have to be in their own separate packaging, and customers can not consume them until they get home.

The rule remains in effect for the duration of DeWine's stay-at-home order. Restaurants remain closed for dine-in service during the coronavirus pandemic.
