Coopers Executive Order for Alcohol Sales
North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper signed an executive order Monday making it easier for businesses to sell alcohol without customers having to show up in person for their purchase. The order, in effect through the end of January, lets restaurants, hotels, clubs, bars and some distilleries holding certain permits from the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission, sell alcoholic products for delivery or curbside pickup. The move is intended to help fight the coronavirus pandemic. The 10-member Council of State approved Cooper’s action. Members include the Democratic governor and several other statewide elected officials.
