COVID-19 and Alcohol Beverage Regulation

The National Alcohol Beverage Control Association (NABCA) continues to work hard to provide its members and partners timely updates on state-level policy changes made through governor-issued executive orders that impact the regulation of the alcohol supply chain in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This webpage will be monitored and updated regularly as new information is available. This area of policy is changing rapidly. Please email if you have updates or questions.

Policy and Operational Changes

NABCA has created several interactive dashboards to help track these policy changes for on-premise operators, including restaurants and bars in addition to off-premise retail operators (e.g., liquor stores, grocery stores). You can also use the maps to filter your view within a dashboard by state. The data can be downloaded and extracted for further analysis.
