New York State is extending the window for people to purchase alcohol-to-go.
The state’s liquor authority announced the move this week and noted that restaurants and bars could continue serving ‘to-go’ alcoholic beverages.
It was made possible during the early-days of the Coronavirus Pandemic, as well as the economic shutdown that followed – as an effort to help those businesses stay alive.
It’s unclear at this point how long the measure will be extended. There’s been some discussion among advocates on whether this should be something lawmakers fight for as a permanent piece of legislation – even after the pandemic is over.
