INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - Governor Holcomb issued an executive order that affects Hoosier bars.
He suspended a part of Indiana code.
EO 20-11. Provisions for carryout consumption of alcohol.
Relaxes the sale of carryout alcoholic beverages for dining establishments. This includes establishments that allow for on-premises consumption only and those that are permitted carryout permits dependent on a percentage of on-premises sales.
That code requires alcoholic drinks to be consumed on-premises.
This move will allow bars to sell alcoholic drinks for carryout.
He made the decision in an effort to help keep businesses struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic afloat.
Right now the decision is set to expire on March 31st.
