Citing Pandemic, Monongalia County Restricts Liquor Sales To In-State Residents

Citing an influx of Pennsylvania residents crossing into West Virginia, the Monongalia County Board of Health has announced it is limiting liquor sales to in-state residents only. The order was issued Saturday, Aptil 4, and went into effect at noon the same day. Other border counties have begun to adopt similar policies.

More than two weeks earlier, on March 19, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolfe ordered that all state liquor stores be closed through an executive order.

As of Saturday at 8 p.m., Pennsylvania is reporting 10,017 cases of COVID-19, while West Virginia officials have confirmed 282 cases 40 of which are in Monongalia County. Local officials say the new restriction is aimed at stopping interstate spread.

3. Did anyone else read the headline and think it was about how much liquor in-state residents

were allowed to buy/drink? I was trying to figure out how they would keep track of residents' alcohol consumption. Haha. I'm just that nutty from this trumpVirus.
