Can you imagine if there was a rule that you couldn't go to a liquor store? Now that would be something that could cause a riot!

Not sure about our liquor stores - BevMo allows online shopping and curb pick-up but no in-store shopping.

You can buy beer, wine and other liquor products at most major grocery stores. In fairness, liquor stores should also be open.

Up here too!  I heard it said that with them closed, there would be an upswing in domestic violence.  (as if there isn't when alcohol is involved, not to mention the money being spent when people are out of work, can't pay their bills, etc.)  Very foolish in my opinion and very shortsighted.

Our governor shut down the 598 state Wine and Spirit stores on Mar 17.  Guess those in states without state-run stores may continue to imbibe freely.

Interesting list.  Where are you more likely to contract a virus/. A trip to liquor store for bottle of wine or sitting thru a religious service?  

Our essential services are limited to:

Life-sustaining business activities

Health care or medical services providers

Access to life-sustaining services for low-income residents, including food banks

Access to child care services for employees of life-sustaining businesses that remain open as follows: child care facilities operating under the Department of Human Services, Office of Child Development and Early Learning waiver process; group and family child care operating in a residence; and part-day school age programs operating under an exemption from the March 19, 2020 business closure Orders.

Law enforcement

The federal government

Religious institutions.

Prohibition made it evident that you don't take away people's alcohol.  Now let's get real estate on the list.  We are essential.
