Has a ban on the sale of alcoholic drinks been imposed in the United States in terms of Covid 19 regulations?
The answer is no, at least if you pour your own drink from a bottle.Has a ban on the sale of alcoholic drinks been imposed in the United States in terms of Covid 19 regulations?
Not really. People go in a liquor store and are out in 5 minutes. When I used to go to church, I was stuck in there for at least an hour and ten minutes to an hour an a half ifLiquor stores are essential for state revenue from taxes. Churches are closed as they are tax exempt.
And there was a 3rd reason, at least where I'm at. They were deemed essential because they were a source of alcohol to make hand sanitizer.Liquor stores were considered an essential service for a couple of reasons. Mostly because the politicians realized that if they shut down liquor access for this nation the country would go to hell in a hand basket within a few days.
Imagine what America, or any other country if they were to force every single alcoholic in the nation to go sober at exactly the same time.
DT's, withdrawls, and violence would run rampant, and then the fear of contracting Covid 19 would be on the back burner until all the alcoholics were either dead, sober, or in jail.
The mediacl providers wouldn't be able to handle it, and if you add this and Covid together, there would be little left in our society.
2nd reason would be taxation. and seriously, in the grand scheme of taxation, alcohol sales don't pull in all that much money.
