BIRMINGHAM—The action will go into effect tonight at 11 p.m.
In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Alabama ABC board has passed a motion that will temporarily restrict all alcohol sales at bars and restaurants across the state, starting on the night of Monday, July 27. The restriction is expected to last 120 days, which would set the end date at Nov. 24.
Bars and restaurants will have “last call” at 11 p.m. and all alcoholic beverages must be consumed by 11:30 p.m., according to the board. Alcohol sales will not be permitted until 6 a.m. the following morning.
According to the order, anyone in violation of the emergency order could have their license pulled immediately.
This action will not prevent to-go or curbside orders, and will not force establishments to close by 11:30 p.m.
