If you enjoyed getting your liquor from the same place where you order your food, you’re in luck.

Government of British Columbia Extends Temporary Authorization That Permits Primary Food and Alcoholic Beverage Licensees to Sell and Deliver Sealed and Packaged Alcoholic Beverages in Conjunction with Purchase of Off-Site Meal during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The adjustment was due to expire on July 15, 2020, but will remain in effect until October 31, 2020. A press release from the Ministry of the Attorney General indicates that “the extension of the temporary authorization will provide businesses with continued relief from financial difficulties and help vulnerable British Columbians continue to follow physical distance guidelines. ”

Before the introduction of the temporary measure, restaurants and pubs were only allowed to sell alcohol for consumption in their establishments.

The province is also extending the hours of service of retail liquor outlets to provide greater opportunities for physical distance.

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