Macomb temporarily changes liquor sales

MACOMB, Ill. (NEWS3) — The City of Macomb is temporarily changing a liquor ordinance in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.

Macomb officials announced businesses can temporarily sell original packaged liquor through curbside pick-up, carry-out, delivery and drive-thru.

This move comes while Illinois is under a stay-at-home order and restaurants and bars are not allowed to offer dine-in services due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials said workers selling or delivering alcohol and customers must be at least 21 years old and provide photo ID for proof of age.

The temporary measure will continue while dine-in services are banned in Illinois.
