Order allows to-go or delivery sales of mixed beverages in North Carolina

Governor Roy Cooper signed an Executive Order on Monday authorizing the North Carolina ABC Commission to permit the delivery or carry-out of mixed beverages as an alternative to on-site consumption. The order is effective December 21 at 5 p.m. through January 31, 2021.

“This order will help people avoid settings that can contribute to increased viral spread while giving restaurants and bars a financial boost that they need right now,” said Cooper. “With cases and hospitalizations high around the country, let’s all do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 while supporting local, small businesses safely.”

The order allows establishments holding certain permits from the ABC Commission – including restaurants, hotels, private clubs, private bars and some distilleries –to sell mixed beverages to-go or for delivery. “These businesses, delivery service providers that contract with these businesses, and purchasers of mixed beverages to-go must follow the restrictions in the Order and any additional restrictions and guidance established by the ABC Commission,” stated a press release from the governor’s office.

The modified stay at home order remains in effect and the sale of alcohol for on-site consumption must still cease at 9 p.m. Businesses subject to the order may continue to sell mixed beverages for off-site consumption until their business closes and in accordance with other applicable laws and regulations. A FAQ sheet is available here.

The Council of State concurred with this Order, stated the release.
