COLUMBUS (WCMH) – The Ohio Liquor Control Board has issued an emergency rule allowing take out and delivery orders to include up to two alcoholic drinks, including high-proof liquor, per meal.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said during Tuesday’s briefing that the board met to issue the emergency rule at the request of restaurants with a valid liquor license.

“This was in response to requests from restaurants who have a liquor license, but also, I suspect, from some of the folks out there who do carry out with these restaurants,” DeWine said.

The governor stressed the prepackaged drinks are not to be opened until the customer arrives at home.

Drinks cannot contain more than two ounces of liquor.

The rule will remain in effect until the end of the state’s stay-at-home order.

The state closed all restaurants to in-person dining on March 15, but restaurants are allowed to continue serving via carry-out, delivery, and drive-thru.
