BC allows restaurants to deliver alcohol

Unemployed servers can provide deliveries to customers' homes, providing work and increasing sales.

Mar 25, 2020 - EightSix Staff

In order to support bars and restaurants closed due to the spread of COVID-19, the government of British Columbia has temporarily permitted the delivery of alcohol along with regular food-delivery service.

Effective immediately, beer, wine, and spirits, with their original seals in place, may be delivered to customers until June 15, 2020, when the program will be revisited and possibly extended.

Service staff, unemployed due to the public closures of all restaurants and other hospitality businesses, can be employed as delivery providers, allowing for some work when much of the industry has been laid-off due to the ban on social gathering.

The move will also allow local breweries, distilleries, and wineries to get their products direct to the consumer.
