Pennsylvania banned the sale of alcohol on the night before Thanksgiving

The state predicts 22,000 new cases of COVID-19 a day in Pennsylvania in December, and in order to somehow reduce the spread of coronavirus, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf introduced mandatory masks and a ban on the sale of alcohol before Thanksgiving.

“As Pennsylvania has seen an increase in cases, the Commonwealth has tightened restrictions. All major events and meetings are shortened until further notice. In addition, stores and catering retailers, including bars, restaurants, and private events, should stop selling alcohol for on-site consumption from the evening of November 25 to the day,” Wolf said.

Significant fines are imposed for violation. The new rules are designed to curb the spread of coronavirus, as all models show a sharp increase in the number of new patients after 2 weeks.
