Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement

Restaurants were permitted to resume bar service and the sale of alcohol without the purchase of food on April 4. Additionally, establishments are now permitted to operate at 75 percent capacity (provided they self-certify and agree to comply with health and safety guidelines), and the previous curfew for removing alcohol drinks from tables was lifted.

Targeted restrictions such as mask-wearing and social distancing between patrons remain in effect and will continue to be enforced.
