HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania State Police alcohol control officers reported four violations over the weekend for failing to meet COVID-19 requirements in the Harrisburg area.
Between Friday and Sunday, officials visited 455 licensed liquor establishments nationwide to ensure companies were complying with COVID-19 abatement requirements, which include social distancing, masking, and other health and safety requirements of the Spirits Act.
The officials issued 26 reports of violations and 18 warnings across the state.
Compliance reviews are unannounced and can take place anywhere in the state, although the focus is on areas with higher coronavirus transmission rates.
Violations can be administrative cited by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. Persistent violations jeopardize a company's alcohol license, either through the citation process or upon request for renewal.
