Booze delivery extended

If you've been enjoying getting your liquor from the same place you order your food from, you're in luck.

The B.C. government is extending the temporary authorization that permits food-primary and liquor-primary licensees to sell and deliver sealed, packaged liquor products alongside the purchase of a meal for off-site consumption during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The adjustment was set to expire July 15, 2020, but will now remain in place until Oct. 31, 2020. A news release from the Ministry of Attorney General indicates, "extending the temporary authorization will provide businesses with continued relief from the financial hardship of the pandemic and help make it easier for vulnerable British Columbians to continue observing physical distancing guidelines."

Before the temporary measure was introduced, restaurants and pubs were only allowed to sell liquor for consumption in their establishments.

The Province is also extending the hours of service for retail liquor outlets in order to provide greater opportunities for physical distancing.

Liquor retailers, are now allowed to temporarily operate between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily until the end of August 2020.
