(WKRG) — (UPDATE: 12/14) — The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board has approved to amend the original statewide order to authorize emergency curbside alcohol sales.
(ORIGINAL) — The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board will hold a virtual Emergency Board meeting on Monday, Dec. 14, at 9:30 a.m. to consider an amendment to authorize emergency curbside sales.
The amendment would allow on-premise licensees to again sell alcoholic beverages to go. The original “Curbside Sales Authorization” expired Sept. 15. The board said the spread of COVID-19 appeared at that time to be on the decline and licensees were re-opening and/or expanding operations and inside seating/service. However, COVID cases have steadily increased over the last month, causing a need to authorize curbside delivery options.
In accordance with the Alabama Open Meetings Act, the emergency meeting notice has been posted on the Secretary of State’s website.
