Gov Wolf to Sign Alcohol-To-Go Bill; NJ Car and Bike Sales Resume; Career Criminal on Chase Caught

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said on Tuesday, 5/19, that he will sign a bill that would allow certain restaurants and bars to serve alcoholic drinks to go. The bill (HB 327 PN 3678) passed overwhelmingly in both the PA House (193-9) and Senate (48-0). Establishments must have a valid restaurant or hotel liquor license and lost more than 25% of their average monthly total sales. They would be permitted to sell mixed drinks from 4 ounces up to 64 ounces for off-premises consumption. Drinks must be sold in a sealed container. If there is a hole for a straw or sipping, that must also be sealed. Sales of alcohol-to-go must stop by 11 p.m. This bill is meant to be a temporary measure to help restaurants and bars during the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis and the mitigation period afterward. When a restaurant begins to operate at 60% capacity, it can longer sell drinks-to-go. Customers are reminded that these drinks are considered 'open containers' and can only be transported in the trunk of the car or in some other area not occupied by the driver or passengers. "I do plan to sign it," Wolf said during a press briefing on Tuesday. "It was passed I think unanimously in both chambers of the General Assembly so I will sign it." New Jersey just enacted similar alcohol-to-go legislation on Friday, 5/15.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced on Tuesday, 5/19, that in-person sales at car and motorcycle dealerships as well as bicycle shops can resume at 6 a.m. Wednesday, 5/20. The New Jersey Department of Health issued new guidance that will allow for elective and non-urgent medical and dental procedures to resume starting May 26. Also, New Jersey's approximately 18,000 pharmacists will be allowed to give coronavirus COVID-19 tests without a prescription. 50 CVS locations will be conducting self-swab tests by the end of the month.
