Alcoholic Drinks Will Remain Available For Takeout And Delivery Through 2022

RICHMOND-Governor Ralph Northam signed into law a bill approved by the General Assembly that will permit restaurants to continue selling mixed alcoholic drinks and premixed wine for takeout and delivery through the summer of 2022.

The new law enables restaurants to sell alcoholic drinks for consumption off premises until July 1, 2022. The governor first permitted restaurants to do so in 2020 after forcing a shutdown and quarantine due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The bill was among multiple bills Governor Northam signed into law earlier in March.

A separate bill was proposed in January that would enable localities to designate certain outdoor areas up to a half a mile as open carry for festivals and other events where alcohol can be consumed. The governor has not yet signed that bill into law.
