WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - The DC Council has passed emergency legislation to offer relief to businesses during the coronavirus outbreak. Restaurants and bars in the District can now offer alcohol in take-out and delivery orders.
This includes closed containers of beer, wine and spirits as long as the beverages are ordered with at least one food item.
Businesses must register with the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration beforehand and it's up to the delivery drivers to make a "reasonable effort" to verify a person's age.
Delivery is only allowed in the District between 7 a.m. and midnight.
